Having read the very positive views of this book on Amazon, I was very much looking forward to reading it. However, I found myself disappointed when I did so.
There are a few good ideas in the book but nothing earth-shattering.
Call me old-fashioned if you will but I find it very hard to take advice on how to teach the perfect English lesson from someone who is unable to use the apostrophe correctly. There are repeated errors in the writer's use of the apostrophe, amongst other glaring ones, with mistakes even appearing on 'learning journeys' PowerPoint slides used in his lessons. A man who makes such a fuss about ensuring his pupils proofread their work would do well to check his own writing more carefully.
