Customer Review

on 13 June 2012
Peppered with sardonic humour, this slightly disorganised first edition remains the ultimate authority on grammar, syntax, punctuation and vocabulary. Fowler cautions against pedantry and the ossification of language, but reminds the reader on every page of the bear traps that exist for the unwary writer who, perhaps through comprehensive schooling, believes that 'getting your meaning across' is more important than precision. State schools long ago turned their backs on good English; Fowler is there to tug us back gently to the path of clarity.
