Best-selling authors Laurie Kirszner and Stephen Mandell have brought simplicity to the study of argument with the third edition of Practical Argument. A straightforward, full-color, accessible introduction to argumentative writing, the text employs an exercise-driven, step-by-step approach to get to the heart of what students need to understand both classical and contemporary argument. Practical Argument foregoes the technical terminology that confuses students and explains concepts in understandable, everyday language, with examples that are immediately relevant to students’ lives.
