Prentice Hall Handbook for Writers 10th Edition Author:Ann Torbet (Editor) from the preface. . . — "The Prentice Hall Handbook for Writers in its tenth edition is designed to meet the needs of today's writers, whether they are in college and university classes or on the job. The point of a handbook is to be "handy" - easy for the individual writer to use as a desk reference tool, easy for instructors and students to use... more » in a classroom setting, and complete enough to support users in both situations. It should be informed by the best of recent composition research while preserving those methods that have been successfully time0tested. A good handbook presents and conserves what is valuable for writers.
The tenth edition of the Handbook maintains that kind of balance. Our text presents in efficient and accessible form the rhetorical issues, choices conventions, and procedures that underlie standard English written for college and the professions."« less
