5.0 out of 5 stars Use it for life! Nov. 5 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I bought this book in 1993 as a requirement for my high school freshman English class. I have used it so much over the years that the spine is barely holding together! The information is laid out so simply and it is wonderfully easy to understand. The only reason you'll ever need to update it is to keep up with new rules on sourcing. My copy was written before there were even encyclopedias on CD-rom, much less the internet! But I still use it today -- 10 years and a master's degree later!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for High School and beyond! Oct. 8 2002
By Engrx2
Format:Paperback
We are using Writers Inc in homeschooling our 10 and 12 year olds. It provides clear, concise explanations of grammar that even 4th graders can understand. We've used it for teaching sentence construction, grammar, speech, and book report and research paper writing. It has sections on just about everything relating to communication at all levels. There are even many unexpected resources including conversion charts, maps, a calendar and much more. An extremely valuable resource!

5.0 out of 5 stars We love this book Nov. 10 2001
Format:Paperback
We have been using Writers Inc. in our homeschooling for about 5 years. Our oldest daughter loved it so much that she took it and Write Source with her to college this year. Now we are lost without them and have to replace them ASAP. Writers Inc is a fantastic book that helps with all types of writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars By far the best Dec 14 2003
Format:Paperback
By far the best writing tool you could (and you most definately will) ever need. It's concise and comprehensive, and a must-buy. It has a feature which I think is hard to find: it's updated to deal with todays media, such as television and the internet. I even used it to write this review. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Still using it after ten years.... Sept. 21 2002
By Brandon
Format:Hardcover
A teacher in high school required that my class purchase an earlier edition of this book, primarily to help with our senior-year research paper. Since then, I've used it as a guide for resumes and letters. Now, ten years later, I'm back in college and using it yet again. Writers INC is indispensable for college-returnees like me, and should be in every high-schooler's locker.

Format:Paperback
Writer's INC, is a to-the-point, very nicely layed out, and very very helpful book. If you need to do a research report for example, it will have an entire example report, a bibliography, and all the tools and things you need to get it done. It provides definitions of many roots and prefixes, and is all in all a huge help with your English homework. Teachers, pick this one up because it also has tips on teaching.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Invaluable Resource July 2 2001
Format:Paperback
Before I reached high school, I thought that English books were the most boring books in the world. When I was assigned to study from "Writers Inc" in 9th grade, however, my opinion changed drastically. "Writers Inc" may be an English book, but it is so helpful and so fun to read that it doesn't seem like one. In addition to having sections for the writing process, personal writing, subject writing, creative writing, persuasive writing, academic writing, research writing, and workplace writing, it also has a student almanac that contains important dates, maps, scientific/mathematical info, government, and language info. The most helpful part of the book, though, is the mechanics section. "Writers Inc" contains a handy guide to proofreading that will be indispensable to students as they learn to improve grammatically -- I know that it has taught me a lot about using the correct syntax. The centrality of all of the "rules" to writing is worth the price of the book alone! Of course, you'll learn a lot from the rules, but you'll also learn from how the book teaches you to adapt your writing to fit a certain purpose. There is even a section devoted to writing better book reviews! :-)
As you can tell, I am very happy with this English textbook -- so happy that I went out and bought a personal copy. "Writers Inc" is simply an invaluable resource for learning to write well. I recommend that school administrators use it as the primary English textbook at their school, and I recommend it to all students wishing to improve their English skills (certainly something that no human is perfect at). Even though I may be an English geek, please take my advice and read this book . . . there is something for everyone to learn.
