5.0 out of 5 stars Does correct English matter and can it be fun?
Yes it does and can. If we write and speak English correctly we can more easily say exactly what we want to say and ensure that the person to whom we are talking or writing will understand us. This is an easy book to read. It makes grammar light work and is an ideal way to help young people understand the beauty and precision of the English language. Don't read all at...

3.0 out of 5 stars A difficult read - not very helpful for beginners.
I found this book quite impenetrable and as a result my poor grammar is for now untouched. Whilst I have no doubt the rules covered are up to scratch, the way they are presented is lacking. The book lacks any form of structure or clear lesson planning. Particularly with the lack of index (a fatal error for a non-fiction book), your only hope is to read it from start to...

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy on a Kindle, 16 Sep 2014

On the kindle this is a topaz books (tpz) meaning it won't do most of the stuff you are used to a kindle book doing. Unfortunately I didn't notice this before buying. Buyer beware, this won't act like the majority of other kindle books.

I immediately junked the file. Pity.

1.0 out of 5 stars And one more thing ..., 14 Aug 2013
Well, as a former book editor myself, I am amazed that the outside front cover contains an error of punctuation. The word 'english' should unequivocably be spelt 'English'. This is a poor show from both the author and publisher.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spiffing, 29 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gosh, simply didn't realize how ignorant one is! Another cardinal sin achieved simply by exclaiming. A very contemporary style for a book that harks back to a form of education from a bygone period. I confess to being tied in knots by some sections - I probably need to spend some time reading those again. Would benefit from some form of index but I didn't buy as a serious reference so this is a minor gripe. Lots of useful examples.
