What a horrid book on composition. Horner ignores ESL concerns, uses language that makes the reading chunky and horribly slow paced, and criticizes everyone without offering any practical, concrete advice other than that work has been commodified. Please.

There are few better books of either the Marxist or the Composition persuasion, and this book manages to contribute significantly to both. There's a rough edge or two, but you can't agree with everybody all the time, I guess.
