Condescending and of little value
on 5 June 2016
The author tries too hard to be 'cool' and 'one of your mates' but it comes accross condescending and irritating. Right from the start the author uses grammar words to explain other grammar words but does not clearly define any. This book does not have exercises and spends too much time on stupid comments that do not add anything of value such as: "But similar words (derived from the same Latin word) are also used to refer to sex, and we don't want you to be distracted so-if you can just get your mind back on the subject of grammar, please- we'll call them linking verbs". The whole book is ridden with such comments instead of getting to the point and CLEARLY explain grammar (the reason why I bought this book in the first place). I threw it away and went on the internet and found lots of very useful free lessons on grammar. Don't waste your money.
