"The Essay Connection, 6/e, offers 82 high-quality, lively, varied, and provocative readings. The text opens with four reader-friendly chapters on the writing process, informed by contemporary scholarship in composition, literary and rhetorical theory, autobiography, and the teaching of writing. While arranged rhetorically, underlying thematic connections in most chapters motivate discussion, debate, and writing.

In addition to presenting such professionals as physicians, U.S. presidents, classic authors, lawyers, a psychologist, and an economist, the text includes 16 student essays from around the world and 14 motivating excerpts from student notebooks.
