NOTE: This “Books a la Carte” edition features the same content as the traditional text in a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf version. Books a la Carte also offer a great value; this format costs significantly less than a new textbook. Before purchasing, check with your instructor or review your course syllabus to ensure that you select the correct ISBN. Several versions of the MyLab platform exist for each title, including customized versions for individual schools, and registrations are not transferable. In addition, you may need a Course ID, provided by your instructor, to register for and use MyLab.

For courses in Developmental English with students of varying skill levels, or those in need of additional writing practice prior to college-level writing.

This package includes MyLab Writing.


A highly visual, theme-based approach to writing that meets you where you are, and guides you to where you need to be.


The Writer’s World series integrates essential elements that are simply not found in other writing books — a stimulating visual program, thoughtful coverage for nonnative speakers, and effective strategies that address the skill levels of all readers. Authors Lynne Gaetz and Suneeti Phadke draw upon their more than 30 years of combined teaching experience to reach as many readers as possible, by meeting their needs and addressing their individual interests and abilities. The authors’ innovative instruction seamlessly infuses material for both native and nonnative speakers, while their exercises and activities encourage active participation and collaboration. The engaging design, open layout, and dynamic images support visual learners and prompt critical thinking.

MyLab Writing is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work in tandem with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them better absorb course material and understand difficult concepts.
