    Writing Day by Day

    :? Writing Day by Day

    I head this book from one of my English teacher. He just tell us that this book is a good book. In Amercia, freshmen major in literature should read this book as a textbook.( Is that true?)

    I want to get more information about this book. But when I use a google or msn to search it, I found there were many useless information, for example, sell information.

    Could you please introduce that book to me?

    Thank you!
    :)

    I'm not familiar with the book and my searches didn't throw up much.

    BTW, for googlers, the author is Atwan.

    • I heard about this book from one of my English teachers. All he told us about it is that it is a good book. In America, freshmen majoring in literature should read this book, he said.

    I was able to find some information about the book. I wasn't able to find out much, but it seems that it is indeed used in college courses on rhetoric and composition.
