This text is one of the best argument books I've used. Besides a wide range of readings, it has a handy section in the back explaining all of the major terms of argument. On the downside, it does focus most exclusively on the Toulmin model of argument. It also does not contain many long texts.
Still, it does contain a section of Mein Kampf, and what argument text is complete without a little Hitler? Great book. This is a pretty good textbook for beginning college composition classes but I don't think I'd assign this to my students. Read this for one of my class. I enjoyed this book.
