I use this in my comp classes now. I'm required to, but I like it for its timely examples and its concise explanations of various aspects of rhetoric, though I'm uncertain whether I'll continue to use it in the future.

Actually it is the 5th Edition. I really did enjoy learning about the different types of argument, and the elements of rhetoric. I found this book to have a lot of real life application.
Julie Platt
Used in my writing 2010 class, a good guide for rhetorical writing and a thorough breakdown of writing dynamics. Also a helpful MLA/ALA guide in the back. I keep it around.
Dave
I have a short classical argumentative essay published in this book, how could I not give it 5 stars!
