Publisher's Summary

"They Say / I Say" identifies the key rhetorical moves in academic writing, showing students how to frame their arguments in the larger context of what others have said and providing templates to help them make those moves. And, because these moves are central across all disciplines, the audiobook includes chapters on writing in the sciences, writing in the social sciences, and - new to this edition - writing about literature.
The best-selling book on academic writing - in use at more than 1,500 schools.

Does not sync with the physical book

What did you like best about "They Say / I Say"? What did you like least?

I used this book for my free trial and to help me in my English 101 class for college. My only complaint is that when you get to the reading section which is in the third edition not all of those reading were available in this audio version.

Also the chapters don't sync up as well, as this was for a college course we don't necessarily do the book from front to back. We skip around a bit. The chapters didn't match up to what was in the book. Took a minute to find where I needed to be in the audio book.

This book needs a "companion", please.

What did you like best about "They Say / I Say"? What did you like least?

I borrowed this book because I needed it for a class at short notice. Many thanks to the authors for having the foresight to make this an audiobook. It was a pleasant surprise. The disappointment crept in when I had a hard time following. This text, in print, has writing prompts which do not translate well in the audio version. A companion PDF of the text would have been awesome. Until then, potential customers should download this audio FILE, which currently has no text companion, their own risks.
