Whilst aimed at students, this book will prove indispensable to anyone who wishes to improve their writing. All the standard topics are covered, such as punctuation and grammar. But, the authors also provide excellent advice on matters such as writing clearly, essay structure and common errors.

Most books of this type are dull and boring to read. 'Write it Right' is a cut above the rest; the authors have created a superbly useful book that will fuel the reader's desire to enhance their writing.

The book is very easy to read, and is an excellent guide for students with English as their first language. Learn how to write clear sentences, and how to spot grammar mistakes.

The information is made easier to digest because it adopts a problem solving approach to grammar mistakes that are commonly made by students. Regarding the style of the book, the authors tend to repeat the same information throughout the book in hope that their message is reinforced. However, students who are conditioned to analysing concise texts might find this confusing because the repeated information is not always clearly indicated. As a note of caution, under the letter writing section, the convention of writing the date under the recipient's address is not common in England. I was taught to write the date after my own address, and this is further evidenced by my sister's education, which represents recent practice.

Overall, this is a good buy for any student, and it can be read within 2 days.

I really enjoyed this book and it really has helped! Anyone criticising the title should open the book and read the first page, which explains that they are aware of the grammatical issues regarding the title. However, I have spotted two typos in the book!
The book is definitely geared to those in sixth form. I am a university student and still found it helpful, even if it was sometimes stating the obvious!

Argh! A book about grammar that confuses an adverb and an adjective in its three word title; couldn't they afford a proof reader? It is frankly unbelievable that no-one spotted this in the production process. How can you trust their other advice?

A guide to writing where the very title contains a grammatical error? I don't think I'll be bothering with this.
