If you are training to be a teacher but dont want to buy endless amounts of books from your booklists (like me) save yourself the trouble of worrying about subject knowledge and buy this book! This really is the bible for english and is a worthwhile purchase as you will use it throughout your career, not just in training! Other books you buy to read and then sell on can be a waste of money... These are not!

BUY IT!

I found this book to be priceless while studying my PGCE as a teacher. The book has been really useful since, where I have been able to take elements of it and apply it to my teaching.

I would highly recommend this book!
