I used the old edition of this book as an English teacher for years. It has an explanation of the grammar on the left and exercises for the student to fill in on the right, with answers at the back.
It is one of the old trusty books you can always keep in your teaching bag for emergency use, as it covered all grammatical issues and explained everything so clearly. I frequently advised students to buy it, either to study with me or, more often, for independent study, as it works absolutely great for students to teach themselves grammar in a systematic way while focusing on speaking skills in lessons.
This new edition has been completely ruined by someone who clearly has literally no experience either as a teacher or as a student of English as a foreign language.
It is printed on that shiny paper that weighs half a ton and that you cannot write on properly in pencil. When you try to rub something out it turns into a complete mess. Despite being a larger book than the old one, the pages feel far more cramped and there is less space to squeeze the answers in than the old one had.
The grammar explanations are somehow less clear than they were in the old edition, even though I cannot work out what they have changed, other than to add in random smears of light blue here and there so that it isn't just a black and white book. Adding colour printing makes it more expensive, for no useful reason at all.
if you can find an old edition of this book, jump at it, that one got 5 stars.

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 !!!!

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.

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.

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.

I would recommend this book to any student or even a teacher for self development. Only issue is.... I cannot believe how thin the paper is. I'm frightened the pages will tear after a great deal of use. I have the first book which I bought a few years ago and you can definitely tell the difference.

This was the suggested grammar book for a CELTA course I'm attending.
The teachers misjudgement of my needs and character cost me a packet as it's a rather expensive purchase and unnecessarily so if it's information you're after. You see, and you will see as unfortunately there's no getting away from it, the exorbitant cost of this book relates to the printing costs because on each page there's a multitude of colours, numerous cartoons/pictures and different fonts in various sizes; all of which is overwhelming. Because of so many things vying for attention I found this book immensely difficult to read and gave up after several attempts. My guess is the author is a friend of the teacher who interviewed me for the course. Regardless, my outlay for this garish rubbish means I'm unable to purchase something suitable for a while and I'm now on the course and feel well out of my depth as I've no idea about the grammar I'm supposed to have swotted up on.
