  1. Very Nice Resource! This is an excellent book for providing essential grammar and usage rules. The text is easy to read, and it covers essential grammatical rules. I recommend it.(If credentials matter to you in evaluating a review, I have a BA in English and a JD (Law). Although I’ve used several grammar resources, I find this one to be a nice addition to my library. It offers nice explanations of the rules and informative examples.)

  2. Excellent grammar resource It isn’t a book I read from beginning to end – but I refer to it when I have a specific question. I also like the book The Only Grammar Book You’ll Ever Need by Susan Thurman. I use them both frequently.

  3. It very useful This is a very useful English grammar, because it clearly distinguishes and explains the problems. It can also be recommended for non-native speakers of English.
