  1. worst grammar book I know of Purports to be a high-level EFL grammar book, but it is so replete with errors, it will make for constant headaches for any instructor who uses it. I don’t mean typos, typing errors: I mean factual errors about English grammar because the author, Allen Ascher, has apparently only begun recently studying it. 

  2. A real editing resource Are you a student who’d like to sharpen your editing skills so your essays and papers don’t come back with your instructor’s circles and underlines over your repeated grammar mistakes? Or maybe you’re a writing instructor looking for resources to help your students edit their written work? Preferably readily-typed paragraphs or essays fraught with specific mistakes? 

  3. I think this is an excellent book I am very interested in grammar and the proper use of words. So many people “murder” the English language these days. This book is easy to read and the lists make understanding easy. I think the book is very helpful when a person has questions about word usage, especially verbs, and punctuation.
