Summary: Acclaimed Guides to Writing. For six of the most frequently assigned genres in the first-year composition course, the Concise Guide includes the Writing Guides that have made The St. Martin's Guide to Writing so successful -- remembering events, writing profiles, explaining concepts, arguing a position, proposing a solution, and justifying an evaluation -- all streamlined for this edition.
