I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to improve their writing. This book has also helped my wife (as she has been out of education for a while) when she is doing homework with our Daughter. Certainly worth the money - and very easyt to understand.
However, if you already have Grammar for Grown-ups. by Craig Shrives - DO NOT buy this book. It is exactly the same... just a different title and different cover.
I have a copy of each... I found out the hard way.
In each section the author explains a concept, and then gives you a number of example sentences; both correct and incorrect, and why.
The book is sprinkled with humorous anecdotes and quotes as well as useful tips and tricks.
The last third of the book covers all the words that people regularly confuse such as Loose vs lose.
This along with English Grammar for dummies are by far the best books on grammar that I have ever read, and compliment each other nicely. Highly recommended. keep it on your desk as a quick reference. You will be turning to it all the time!
