    "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.

    "Hard to Listen to...."
    Would you listen to "They Say / I Say" again? Why?

    This book was probably better in print, but the framework is a good model for teaching young students how to write more effectively. The audiobook was hard to track and difficult to follow their writing samples and examples.

    "essential guide for surviving academic writing"

    Very clear breakdown of useful strategies for academic writing- highly recommended, just wish I had found it much earlier in my studies!
