A Very Brief Handbook of Rhetoric for Composition Students and Beginning Writers
This is a short book. That is by design. If anyone needs, or even wants, a 200, 300, or 400-page book on rhetoric and composition there are plenty from which to choose. I certainly have been required to use a variety of these textbooks in my college classrooms. Each one holds out the hope, usually a false one, that maybe this will be the book that will help teach students how to write. Unless forced the majority of students dont even open them. With this book Ive attempted to distill the essence of rhetoric and apply it to the sort of writing college students are likely to face. I wanted to include everything I think all writers should know about rhetoric and composition and eliminated everything else. I left teaching for about 10 years and worked in the competitive world of the securities industry. I have applied my knowledge of how rhetoric is used in the business world in some of the examples used in the text.
