The Brief Bedford Reader (ISBN 9780312613389) is a condensed but very comprehensive version of the best-selling reference textbook for reading, writing, research, and composition. It integrates practical examples, instructional guidelines, and helpful illustrations and is published by Bedford/St. Martin's. Authors X. J. Kennedy, Dorothy M. Kennedy, and Jane E. Aaron motivate students to become better academic writers without overwhelming them with advanced information reserved for literature majors. This straightforward manual is very easy to use; it starts with a discussion of the basics of reading, writing, and research. The Brief Bedford Reader also discusses critical reading, the writing process, and academic writing and provides inspiring sample readings at the end of each chapter. The authors continue to explain methods of narration and telling a story, along with how students can write better descriptions by using their senses. This efficient textbook proficiently delivers guidelines on process analysis, comparison and contrast, and discussing examples and helps students use these tips to make their writing more organized and convincing. To encourage critical thinking, X. J. Kennedy, Dorothy M. Kennedy, and Jane E. Aaron drives students to ask questions — emphasizing the 'why' factor and teaching them how to use ‘cause and effect' reasoning to give depth to their writing. By the end of the book, students are also expected to become better in persuasion and delivering arguments with sound opinions and persuasive proposals. The authors are all acclaimed writers and editors; together, they have written multiple college-level composition handbooks, all of which have been top-sellers.
