Frustrating Text Jun 23, 2008
I have taken my share of English classes in my journey as a student. The course that I had chosen for the spring/summer term 2008 required this book as our text. I can honestly say that I have never had a book frustrate me as much as this one did. Drew Hinderer, a decent writer should have revised the second edition to this book. Some chapters I felt I could connect with what he was trying to say, others left me puzzled as to why he chose certain examples and whatnot. My main gripe most of all is that I felt as though he was talking down to me. I personally would not give this book a second look. That is why I donated it to my class instructor so that some other student wouldn't waste the thirty dollars that I did.
