This inexpensive and very brief version of the best-sellingPenguin Handbookoffers the same student-friendly strengths: a highly visual design, cutting edge coverage of research, and the best presentation of documentation available. With more visuals, photos, and sample documents than other essential handbooks, this handy full-color reference gives students just what they need to know about the writing and research processes, while providing extensive coverage of documentation and grammar. Unique "Source Samples" in the documentation chapters give students pages from actual sources with notes explaining where to find the information to create a citation and unique "Common Errors" boxes in the grammar chapters provide quick guidance on key errors. The Little Penguin Handbookwill be an invaluable resource for students in composition courses and in courses across the curriculum.
