“Here’s what I like best about Palmquist’s book: it’s simple, direct, organized, useful, practical, and affordable. This is a book students will use long after they finish their freshman composition courses. It’s a survival handbook for the rocky terrain of academic research writing…. With The Bedford Researcher, my students only need one book.”
