Terrific price for this hard-to-locate book!
I needed this particular edition for an online course I'm taking. I could not find it anywhere but on eBay. It has been helpful in my studies.

I like the book. It explains and makes writing into a process of steps instead of one huge project. In my opinion it gets the job done.
