“This wonderfully affordable, comprehensive writer's handbook is perfect for use with first-year writing students. I have used several handbooks in over twenty years of teaching college writing but EasyWriter is by far the best.” – Leaf Seligman, Keene State College
“EasyWriter is a concise, informative, and highly portable handbook that aids students in developing, writing, and polishing academic work in many fields of study. It is a book they should receive early on in their education, because they will refer to it again and again throughout their academic careers.” – Megeen Mulholland, Hudson Valley Community College
“EasyWriter is a compact, easy-to-use handbook that provides essential information on writing, research, punctuation, and documentation. Lunsford balances attention to rules with a focus on choice, showing how language use depends on genre, context, and audience.” – Melissa Goldthwaite, Saint Joseph’s University
