I am a long time New Avengers fan and wasn't quite sure how the new New Avengers would fare in the post-Siege world. Happily the team retained many of my favourite characters and the dynamic was as great as ever.
I particularly liked the continuity as the story looked back to pre-Siege events with Dr. Strange, but also enjoyed watching the team, and Luke Cage in particular, figure out how to operate in the new regime.
I've also read the first volumes of Avengers and Secret Avengers and, while I enjoyed those too, I can safely say that neither have the balance of action and laugh-out-loud whimsy that characterises the New Avengers and makes them my favourite Avengers team.

4.0 out of 5 stars Playful and Informative, 17 April 2010
I needed to refresh my grammar prior to starting a new job, and found English Grammar For Dummies very helpful.
The book offers a comprehensive overview of grammar, starting from the basics and working up to more difficult concepts. I feel sure that I will dip into it whenever I get stuck in future.
While I enjoyed the lighthearted tone, and found the jokes fairly amusing, it did become wearing over the course of the book, and I would imagine that some readers will find it off-putting.
