About the book:

The Longman Handbook for Writers and Readers, 3/e, explores the connection between reading and writing, helping students develop an intuitive understanding of grammar conventions and encouraging them to adjust their writing style to meet the needs of varying audiences. A comprehensive reference to the processes of writing and research, The Longman Handbook emphasizes the reader-writer connection in two key ways. The "Read, Recognize, Revise" approach to editing grammar and style encourages students to use their own experience as readers to help them spot critical errors in their writing and to apply specific strategies from the text to correct them. In addition, the text highlights the expectations of various communities of writers and readers; emphasizing the academic community, it also includes unique coverage of the public and workplace communities. It outlines the kinds of writing students can expect to find in each, and offers guided advice on how best to write within the context of the community they are addressing. New material on oral presentations and online communication ensures that students are prepared to compose in contexts that extend from disciplines across the curriculum, to situations outside the classroom as well.
