"Nystrand's book reads well and is fresh, interesting, and important step in the study of writing. He and his contributors provide information that will be valuable for a range of readers, particularly graduate students seeking to understand not only current thinking but also the historical antecedents of certain approaches and perspectives.
"This book is an important contribution to the field because it helps us recognize the value of a multidisciplinary approach to writing research. It broaches the kinds of questions that, in my estimation, will ultimately lead to the construction of a theory of literacy, and it encourages us to pursue our own lines of inquiry with a greater sense of the whole" (from R. Horowitz, "Toward a Theory of Literacy," The Harvard Educational Review, 1984, 54, pp. 88-97).
"What Writers Know lends cohesion to a number of diverse approaches, including valuable treatments of children's writing development and simulations of human writing behaviour with computer generated writing" (Alan Hegarty in The Australian Journal of Psychology, 1984, 36, 127-128).
"Nearly all of the fourteen essayists have something to say to business and professional writers. . . . The tempting promises in the preface and in Nystrand's opening essay are reasonably well fulfilled in the essays which follow. . . . I commend . . . the essays to the attention of anyone who wants to help minister to the theory needs of our disciplines" (Robert D. Gieselman in The Journal of Business Communication, 1985, 22, 70-71).What Writers Know: The Language, Process, and Structure of Written Discourse Overview
