    I was very impressed with this as both a textbook and just a generally useful and comprehensive handbook for working in the communication/rhetorical fields. Brummett's writing and examples are fairly clear throughout (albeit a bit odd, sometimes), and he does maybe the best job I've encountered yet in defining what it means to be a critic, and what the goal of criticism actually ought to be.
