5.0 out of 5 stars
Stylish (no pun intended), 5 Sept. 2005
This book is written with all the knowledge and wit one has come to expect of Prof. Paul Simpson. Coupling key readings with humour has created an incredibly readable text. The diversity of examples and the clear layout are a welcome breaks from the norm.
On the whole, the book "does exactly what is says on the tin", while also giving the reader useful information and a concise breakdown of many facets of modern stylistics.
