A writer's handbook from A to Z
Too many clones exist in the English handbook market. Arrangement is either greatest to smallest (essay to word) or smallest to greatest (parts of speech to essay). The concise handbook market has provided briefer versions of the standard handbook with the same arrangement with parts omitted. Meantime, people still try to figure out how to find information. This book differs from all the rest because it arranges its entries in a way that is easy to understand alphabetically. This brief reference handbook organizes its grammar contents by the letters of the alphabet to facilitate reference for users, many of whom may not understand the logic of traditionally-arranged handbooks. Separate sections on the writing process, the research paper, and specialized writing assignments are also included. An ideal reference for anyone looking for an easy-access handbook.
