As early as Chapter 1, author Marcie Sims defines critical thinking and goes on to explain the meaning and function of specific critical thinking terms and tools throughout the book. This element of critical thinking was something that Sims found missing in developmental writing texts currently available. Reaching beyond the usual writing instruction found in other texts, Sims gets to the core of developing the writer, which is to develop the writer as a thinker-writer. This approach to writing provides students with the basic tools for writing well-organized and developed essays that are grammatically and mechanically correct. 0321964128 / 9780321964120 Write Stuff, The: Thinking Through Essays Plus NEW MyWritingLab with Pearson eText -- Access Card Package Package consists of: 0205870147 / 9780205870141 NEW MyWritingLab with Pearson eText -- Valuepack Access Card 0321899881 / 9780321899880 The Write Stuff: Thinking Through Essays

The Fun Stuff and Other Essays

Following The Broken Estate, The Irresponsible Self, and How Fiction Works – books that established James Wood as the leading critic of his generation – The Fun Stuff confirms Wood’s pre-eminence, not only as a discerning judge but also as an appreciator of the contemporary novel. In twenty-three passionate, sparkling dispatches – that range over such crucial writers as Thomas Hardy, Leo Tolstoy, and Edmund Wilson – Wood offers a panoramic look at the modern novel. He effortlessly connects his encyclopaedic, eloquent understanding of the literary canon with an equally in-depth analysis of the most important authors writing today, including Cormac McCarthy, Kazuo Ishiguro, and V.S. Naipaul. Included in The Fun Stuff are the title essay on Keith Moon and the lost joys of drumming – which was a finalist for last year’s National Magazine Awards – as well as Wood’s essay on George Orwell, which Christopher Hitchens selected for the Best American Essays 2010. The Fun Stuff is indispensable reading for anyone who cares about contemporary literature.

Not marketed for dummies, Your Writing Well assumes readers have the smarts to follow mature common-sense guidance, grasp examples, and thus compensate for their existing lack of knowledge of what to do, how and why to do it, and where.

The Wright Stuff

Inspired by his parents' love for the written word, former Speaker of the House Jim Wright developed a passion for books and writing at a young age. During his thirty-four years as a US Congressman and two years as Speaker of the House, written communication continued to play an integral role in Wright's life as he developed an increased understanding of the power of words. Through a sampling of some of Wright's finest work, The Wright Stuff follows the major elements in Wright's political career, ideological development, and philosophical thought. A prolific and accomplished writer, Wright possesses the keen ability to properly contextualize historic events while providing enduring lessons in governance and life. In addition to offering a unique perspective on Wright's contemporaries and the leaders of today, this compilation of speeches, essays, and excerpts from his previous work addresses many of the major national and international events of the twentieth century. Additionally, this book chronicles a more personal narrative through Wright's reflection on the most important influence of his young life--his parents--and shares some of the key lessons he learned during his service with the US Air Corps during World War II. Generously illustrated with photographs, The Wright Stuff allows readers to celebrate the many accomplishments of Speaker Wright, and, through his eyes, to gain a greater understanding of many of the signature events of the twentieth century.
