Mind the Gaffe: The Penguin Guide to Common Errors&hellip by R L Trask

2.0 out of 5 stars OK, 25 Aug 2007
I'm glad i only borrowed this book from a local library and did not buy it. Whilst some readers may find it very useful, I found it too 'heavy' a read. It takes quite a serious tone, and as I am not a professional author etc, i didn't find it a hugely beneficial read. I would recommend something like Who's Whose, as I certainly found Who's Whose a much more light-hearted read, with more interesting information. This book however i recommend to only serious writers and people writing for worldwide audiences.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, 25 Aug 2007
I borrowed this book from my local library after some deliberation as to whether or not to buy it, and I'm quite glad I only borrowed it. An entertaining read, guaranteed to make you say "wow I never knew that", however due to people simply using the internet to look things like this up I cannot imagine anyone using it as much of a reference book, therefore if you can get it from somewhere like a local library, I would recommend this instead. Having said that, I find it more of a fun and light-hearted read that many other books like this (Mind The Gaffe for example), so worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down, 16 July 2007
If you liked the 1st book, you'll love this one. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. Best book I've read in a long time, better than Thieves Like Us
