Dr. Lewis' book, Word and World: A Critical Thinking Reader, a First Canadian Edition, published by Thomson Nelson © 2007 ISBN/ISSN: 0176414967, offers a different approach to academic writing. Although it contains many familiar subjects, they have been arranged to tell a slightly different story; the power of language to affect perception. English instructors can use these lessons to help students sharpen essay writing, clarify thought, and receive better grades. More importantly however, these lessons help students become aware of how words create meaning - on the printed page, in the courtroom, on the job, in the video screen, in the classroom, and across the nation - and how sometime meaning is created for them.
