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
