The pocket-sized handbook that does the work of a full-sized handbook, now with a new section on editing the errors that matter.
Most handbooks include chapters on various general writing topics (e.g., the writing process or the elements of an argument), but few cover the specific kinds of writing students are assigned to do. The Little Seagull has chapters on reports, analyses, and all the other genres that college students are most often assigned. And because it’s so small, so easy to use, and so affordable, it’s proven to be a popular alternative to larger (and much more costly) handbooks.
Please note that this version of the book does not include access to any media or print supplements.
