    1. For academic books, the rating isn't based on whether I like or dislike them, but whether or not I find them useful.This book is useful to me, and would be useful to anyone interested in genre or in understanding how academic research writing is done. It's also a good resource for anyone teaching upper division and (especially) graduate student writers.
