Product Description


"We chose The Norton Reader for the breadth and excellence of its readings-and for the way those readings foster critical thinking and thoughtful writing. It's a book that prompts both instructors and students to think about many of the most important questions being discussed across the academy today. And it gives our very diverse faculty plenty of choice at a reasonable price." -- Alan Ainsworth, Houston Community College "Still sets the standard." -- Allston James, Monterey Peninsula College "The depth, selection, and range of choices in The Norton Reader are exhilarating. I often feel like I am in a candy store and have to make very difficult choices from all the goodies." -- Linda Goldberg, Stevens Institute of Technology

So many great pieces! 15 Oct. 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
And it covered so many topics. I especially liked the questions at the end of most of the pieces as it gave you an opportunity to reflect even more and such interesting stories.

Not the biggest fans of the readings they thought would be a good collection. Many great essays were left out in my opinion.
