    They Say, I Say demystifies academic writing by identifying its key rhetorical moves, the most important of which is to summarize what other have said (“they say”) to set up one’s own argument (“I say”). This audiobook also provides templates to help students make these key moves in their own writing. This version includes readings that demonstrate those moves—and provide stimulating conversations for them to enter. The third edition includes an anthology of forty-four readings that will provoke students to think—and write—about five important issues, including two new ones: “Is higher education worth the price?” and “Why does it matter who wins the big game?”

    Benny Lewis, who speaks ten languages and counting—all self-taught—runs the largest language-learning blog in the world, Fluent in 3 Months. Lewis is a full-time “language hacker,” someone who devotes all of his time to finding better, faster, and more efficient ways to learn languages. Fluent in 3 Months: How Anyone at Any Age Can Learn to Speak Any Language from Anywhere in the World is a blueprint for learning language fast. Lewis’ approach is different from other language programs as he encourages readers to avoid studying, ignore grammar, and start speaking from day one. Lewis argues that you don’t need a great memory or “the language gene” to learn a language quickly and debunks a number of long-held beliefs, such as that children are better language learners. Fluent in 3 Months puts Lewis’ language hacks together in a way that will allow anyone at any age to learn to speak any language from anywhere in the world.

    When Mark Salzman is invited to visit a writing class at Central Juvenile Hall, a lockup for Los Angeles’s most violent teenage offenders, he scrambles for a polite reason to decline. He goes—expecting the worst—and is so astonished by what he finds that he becomes a teacher there himself. True Notebooks is an account of Salzman’s first years teaching at Central. Through it, we come to know his students as he did: in their own words. At times impossible and at times irresistible, they write with devastating clarity about their pasts, their fears, their confusions, their regrets, and their hopes. They write about what led them to crime and to gangs, about love for their mothers and anger toward their (mostly absent) fathers, about guilt for the pain they have caused, and about what it is like to be facing life in prison at the age of seventeen. Most of all, they write about trying to find some reason to believe in themselves—and others—in spite of all that has gone wrong. Surprising, charming, upsetting, enlightening, and ultimately hopeful—driven by the insight and humor of Salzman’s voice and by the intelligence, candor, and strength of his students, whose writing appears throughout the book—True Notebooks is itself a reward of the self-expression Mark Salzman teaches: a revelatory meditation on the process, power, and meaning of writing.
