Format: Paperback
I used to hate the thought of brushing up on grammar, but this book changed all that. Finally there's a concise book that covers all the basic rules - and makes it fun to learn, too. The first part of the book is an excellent overview of the rules of the English language, with plenty of explanations and examples. The second part gives terrific lessons in style and shows you how to use the rules of the English language. Each chapter also has tips and pointers, and a fun quiz at the end!
Easily the best grammar book I've ever seen!

Format: Paperback
I haven't studied grammer since grade school and this book is a good refresher. The content seems comprehensive. However, I am a little annoyed at two incidentals:

1. There are just not enough examples.

2. I have located four errors in the quizzes and I'm only a third of the way through the book. This is the most frustrating aspect. To what extent can I improve my grammer when the answers for the quizzes are incorrect? For those that own the text, look at problem 6 on page 127. The correct answer should be B and not A as the answer sheet describes.

I think I will hang onto this book and use it as a reference.

I had the honor of meeting Dr. Hensley at a conference in North Carolina. I managed to go to ever class he taught. This man is an amazing teacher! He can teach you more in ten minutes than most can teach you in one year. I encourage all who are looking for insight into writing to purchase this book and USE IT.

Format: Paperback
This book isn't easy. I have my masters in English, working on a PhD, and at times I was even caught up with it. Very good quizes, but too fast pace, it is impossible to learn everything with the limited resources given. But, for a professor with a PhD, maybe it's possible... But then again, he should already know it all.

The book has some good content but the quizes and exercises are [bad] The exercises are just multiple choice questions that are so easy most 2nd graders could probably handle them. Overall not a great book for adults.
