Reading Critically, Writing Well: A Reader and Guide (ISBN 9780312607616) is a comprehensive writing manual written for university students who want to improve their research and writing skills. Following the footsteps of the very successful The St. Martin's Guide to Writing, authors Rise B. Axelrod, Charles R. Cooper, and Alison M. Warriner have created this structured yet versatile reference that aims to hone critical thinking, rhetoric, and reading dexterity. It consists of 8 chapters peppered with contemporary essays written by both students and professionals, giving readers a clear idea of how to write autobiographies, become better observers, how to reflect well, and how to explain concepts through writing. The does not just teach fundamental writing skills, but more importantly, helps learners develop critical thinking and analysis. Rise B. Axelrod and co-authors Charles R. Cooper and Alison M. Warriner compiled helpful readings that encourage students to become better evaluators and speculators, determining causes and effects and writing proposals to solve problems. The appendix section offers an overview of outlining, paraphrasing, previewing, and synthesizing; students who need to review these fundamentals will find this section extremely useful. Reading Critically, Writing Well: A Reader and Guide also serves as a guide for evaluating the logic of an argument, searching for patterns of opposition, and identifying emotional manipulation and logical fallacies. Strategies for documentation, research, and analyzing visuals were also discussed by authors Rise B. Axelrod, Charles R. Cooper, and Alison M. Warriner. This book is widely available in bookshops and online, and can also be rented. It is a timeless reference that will prove useful well beyond the university.
