This review focuses on the book Learner Identity and Learner Beliefs in EFL Writing by Olga Majchrzak. The book is one of the edited books in the series of Second Language Learning and Teaching by Miroslav Pawlak from Springer International Publishing. The review addresses the issues that the book explores such as learner identity in foreign language writing, EFL student beliefs, and students’ attitudes about EFL writing as explored by the author. The book could be used by students and researchers focusing on writing and also by writing instructors who would like to have class discussions on how students’ identities and beliefs would affect their writing abilities and skills. It connects L1 and L2 writing processes in detail through empirical studies; however, some recommendations are provided, in this review, for future editions.
