If you were taught, then put it on your wish list. Everyone should have this book, in fact... a great stocking filler for total grammar novices and experts alike The Northern Echo Sensible and concise... shows you how to make our wonderful, fluid language work for you rather than against you The Good Book Guide This book would be the perfect Christmas gift for anyone who is genuinely interested in why we write the way in which we do, or who likes doing what's right and proper The Basingstoke Gazette A useful book for anyone with an interest in the English language and an excellent stocking filler The Wolverhampton Chronicle A useable refresher... pedants will also find answers to those evergreen contentious teasers The Bournemouth Daily Echo It's a little gem that takes you on a tour of the English language Knutsford Guardian
