4.0 out of 5 stars Good and useful, but not perfect

It has lessons and exercises which I shall enjoy going through and I think that it was worth buying. However, I found a mistake immediately on opening the book!

I'm possibly being a little harsh in only giving three stars for this book, as it is a fine grammar tutorial - but not in Kindle format! To gain the maximum benefit from this book, you will need to follow the author's recommendation and make notes and place answers on the page (in pencil!) which isn't practical with a Kindle. So if you really want to hone your grammatical skills this book is great, only buy the paper version rather than the Kindle one.

I am a member of the grammar and spelling police. I loved completing the exercises in this book. For me, it was great fun! I bought it as a present for a friend who is also interested in the correct use of English. I highly recommend it.
