“I used the text extensively when I taught at Rutgers University. It is a clear, step-by-step guide to the basics of research writing within the framework of Business and Technical Writing. Moreover, it is equally useful as a concise guide to research writing on any level, even in the graduate arena. The device of the "6 Ps" is eminently useful and explained in detail here; the text demonstrates how these principles underlie solid academic argumentation by continually returning to specific assignment sequences and suggestions for additional work on the part of both instructor and student.”
