5.0 out of 5 stars Here's to you, Murphy
This isn't the latest edition, and so it has much better pictures. Despite its limitations, Murphy's Grammar is an impressive achievement. It's great how he compares and distinguishes similar words, and helps students to understand some of the supple and eloquent expressions of the language. Thank goodness the English (or Irish?) got this one together.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as comprehensive as I hoped
As a book for someone curious about grammar, perhaps wanting to learn to write and speak with better grammar this is fine. It has topics laid out as "units" (lessons) with examples for the student to work. But at its price, size and coming from Cambridge I expected something more comprehensive. I was particularly interested in topics such as the correct use of the...

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable tool for all ESL teachers, 3 Sept. 2013

This review is from: English Grammar in Use Students Book Intermediate with Answers: A Self-Study Reference and Practice Book for Intermediate Students of English (Paperback)
This book is an incredible resource for ESL teachers. It is the easiest to understand out of all the grammar reference books I've read, providing clear examples in each lessons, accompanied by clear timelines and illustrations. The way Murphy explains the grammar works very well if you're trying to figure out how to teach it in class; he lays it out in a way that both the teacher and the students understand. Lastly, the exercises are brilliant. They're varied, follow a clear progression, and serve as a great springboard for further exercises and activities. I own a few more ESL books but this was by far my best purchase.

If you're a foreign person, looking for a grammar book, this one is for you. This book is advisable by a lot of school in London. You have for each lesson (almost 150) a little explanation to understand and after few exercise to practice !!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best, 4 July 2012

This review is from: English Grammar in Use Students Book Intermediate with Answers: A Self-Study Reference and Practice Book for Intermediate Students of English (Paperback)
If you only want to buy one grammar book, this is it! Each grammar point is clearly explained and followed by exercises which not only reinforce learning but also teach everyday idiomatic expressions.

This review is from: English Grammar in Use Students Book Intermediate with Answers: A Self-Study Reference and Practice Book for Intermediate Students of English (Paperback)
As a book for someone curious about grammar, perhaps wanting to learn to write and speak with better grammar this is fine. It has topics laid out as "units" (lessons) with examples for the student to work. But at its price, size and coming from Cambridge I expected something more comprehensive. I was particularly interested in topics such as the correct use of the subjunctive and the possessive pronoun "ones". I still don't know if "one's" or "ones" is correct.

The index is substandard. You won't find "possessive pronouns", "subordinate clauses", "predicate" and things like that, making it at best difficult to refer to the contents of the lessons, assuming such lessons are there.

So it's good as far as it goes but it doesn't go far. The descriptions and "look inside" are unhelpful in choosing a book to meet particular needs so it might be best to browse a selection at a bookship or library before buying.

Murphy's grammar books have been recommended to me since I started my TEFL course 2 years ago. I love the Cambridge format, one page of explanation followed by a page of exercises. Ideal for self-study, it is also an indispensable tool for the English teacher to clarify particular points of grammar or of expression. I am very glad to have added it to my library and will definitely recommend it to others.
