Review by Booklist Reviews

Learning how to construct an argument for or against a topic can be a tricky business, and these books in the Matters of Opinion series do an excellent job of demonstrating how to write convincingly on a number of weighty subjects. Each title begins with a topical time line and an introduction to the issues that will be debated. Three opinion-based questions follow, each in its own chapter, with pro and con arguments as well as an explanation of a persuasive technique utilized by the chapter's essays, such as bias, testimonials, or the incorporation of primary sources. A concluding writing prompt outlines essay structure for the readers' own opinion pieces. Cell Phones takes on the distractions and potential dangers, usefulness, and social impacts of these devices. All the books are thoroughly cited, which serves as an added example of how to lend an argument credibility. Solid writing guides that lead by example. Copyright 2016 Booklist Reviews.
