Everything’s an Argument is a smart and reliable text on argumentation, brilliantly blending the classic tropes with contemporary issues. It does not patronize and offers a wealth of model essays for discussion, prompts, and illustrations. Students will love this book while learning the qualities of effective argument. Most pleasing to me is that the text discusses not just reasoning and logic, but also the style, in all its forms, of the well-wrought argument.” –Timothy Shonk, Eastern Illinois University

Everything's An Argument is an excellent and comprehensive introduction to argumentation; with more material than you could possibly use in a single class, it has all that one might need to successfully teach argumentative writing.” –Matthew Davis, University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point

“Everything's an Argument is a thorough and thoroughly engaging text rooted in classical rhetoric while, at the same time, cutting edge in its attention to contemporary writing practice, presentation, and production. Its style is colorful, witty, and pedagogically motivated to help students grasp the complexities of written, oral, and visual argument.” --William Taylor, University of Alabama, Huntsville

“I think Everything’s an Argument is well organized, fantastically written, and designed beautifully. It achieves the right tone for the students and offers a good range of examples. I also enjoy the way the text utilizes sophisticated rhetorical and analytical tools without making them seem so. The opening chapters on ethos, pathos, and logos in particular provide the foundation for the following chapters and, for me, the course.” --Kevin Petersen, University of Massachusetts, Lowell
