This is not a book that I would pick up on my own initiative. It was a required textbook for an English course. The book itself is informative and will be useful pertaining to the English class. Read full review

It is what it is.

It's the MLA 7th Edition, not much to be said about it. It's required for all CSU students. It is pretty easy to go through and use, so that's a plus. I say, if you need it, buy it from Wal-Mart and you won't be disappointed. Read full review
