The newest member of the Little, Brown family of handbooks, LB Brief offers a mid-sized, spiral-bound reference at an affordable price. Like its relatives, LB Brief provides students of varying skills and interests with clear, reliable, and accessible advice on the writing process, critical thinking and argument, writing with computers, grammar and usage, research writing, source documentation, and more. Nine sample student essays, hundreds of clear examples from across the curriculum, and exercises in connected discourse give students models to emulate and opportunities for practice. Unique reference aids--including frequently asked questions, Key Terms boxes, an accessible organization, and minimal terminology--help students find what they need and then use what they find.
