I have known of The Complete Plain Words since the mid 1950's and have my 1973 copy on my desk at all times. I bought this latest copy for my granddaughter, just ahout to go up to university. I find it an invaluable aid when writing reports or even just letters: it sorts out those tricky sentences which do not seem quite right and mostly gives the answer to those bits of grammar which one is not quite certain about. Everyone should have one!
