5.0 out of 5 stars A funny book
As an avid fan of Gervase Phinn's work I found 'Mangled English' very funny. It certainly made me smile. Most enjoyable.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
I found this to be little more than a list of grammatical errors and spelling mistakes. This author is generally a great read but I was disappointed by this one

This review is from: Mangled English: A Lighthearted Look at the Mishandling of the English Language by 'the Man with the Funny Name' (Hardcover)
I read this in a morning as it was so light-hearted yet it also reminded me of a lot of English technical terms that I had forgotten. I loved the book requests-hilarious!

This review is from: Mangled English: A Lighthearted Look at the Mishandling of the English Language by 'the Man with the Funny Name' (Hardcover)
A laugh a page. Just what is wanted this winter. It is also thought provoking but very ejoyable and is nearly a reference book.
