This book should be avoided - I taught from the 10th ed. but it is unlikely that the 11th ed. has been corrected in the matters noted below. First, in the chapter on outlining - essential for all beginning writers - all three of the sample outlines (pp. 339, 340, 341) contain the fatal error of subdividing a topic into
a single item. No group can consist of a single member only, and the grouping of similar thoughts (logically parallel and eventually grammatically parallel) is _sine_qua_non_ for coherent writing. These bad examples make it completely impossible for students to understand the most important functions of an outline: the grouping of parallel items that enables the writer to 1) organize thoughts and 2) generate further thoughts - finding parallel ideas, assertions, examples, etc. Second, there are numerous gross errors of fact in the book. For example, though it is essential to know the difference between allusion and reference, this textbook twice misinforms students about them. We find this: "Allusions are references to...literary...works" (p. 277) and "An allusion is a reference to...religious, literary, artistic, or historical works or sources" (p. 280). I could adduce more examples, but these are enough to make clear that this book should be taken off the shelves.
