Summary: Reading Skills Handbook, 9/e, teaches in plain language the essential reading and study skills required for success in college.

The cornerstone of the Wiener/Bazerman System, Reading Skills Handbook, 9/e, retains the features that have made it a bestseller for more than twenty-five years: flexible format, high-interest readings, clear explanations, and a multitude of practice exercises. The step-by-step approach encourages students to move with confidence more from simple to more complex skills. An anthology of readings helps students apply newly learned skills in selections drawn from books, magazines, and newspapers and including essays, articles, textbook pages, journals, fiction, photographs, illustrations, cartoons, advertisements, and Web sites-in short, the wide range of reading opportunities available to today's readers at home or on the job.


  • A unique two-part format allows students to focus on the reading skills they need most and develop those skills in meaningful contexts. Part 1, the Handbook, identifies and explains the essential reading skills and integrates instruction, examples and extensive practice exercises. Part 2, the Reading Selections, includes 20 longer passages with accompanying exercises that are cross-referenced to the handbook.
  • Numerous charts and other visual aids to help students learn more readily.
  • Focus on visual aids as key elements in fostering successful reading, including instruction in how to read word charts, graphs, tables, diagrams and photographs.
  • Self-tests in every chapter, help students assess their progress.
  • Unit tests at the end of each major section of the handbook review the key points of each chapter.
  • Critical thinking and writing activities encourage students to explore the ideas presented in selected readings and relate them to their own experiences and perceptions.
  • Writing activities after each anthology selection.
  • Significant practice in vocabulary building.
