NANCY SOMMERS, who has taught composition and directed composition programs for thirty years, now teaches writing and mentors new writing teachers at Harvard's Graduate School of Education, USA. She led Harvard's Expository Writing Program for twenty years, directing the first-year writing program and establishing Harvard's WAC program.
    Review quote
    'The book's completeness combined with its portability means that our students actually bring it to class and put it to use.' - Leslie Johnson-Farris, Communication Department, Lansing Community College, USA 'My students like the affordability, clarity, and coverage of everything they seem to need. Many say they will keep A Pocket Style Manual long after they graduate.' - Richard Battaglia, California State University, USA 'I like the slim, spiral-bound, durable, well-indexed, concise format. The content is ideal for me. The examples are especially useful and compelling. It is a great value for students during their entire college career and beyond.' - David Bussard, Susquehanna University, USA 'I like A Pocket Style Manual because it is not intimidating to students and, despite its small size, it has everything I need for classroom activities and for helping students with specific problems in their papers and with their research.' - Elizabeth Hoffman, California State University, USA
