5.0 out of 5 stars Superb July 5, 2007
Format:Paperback
I have been using the 2nd edition of this book to tutor my brother-in-law and his wife. They've enjoyed the book, but recently, I decided to "upgrade". The book arrived in the mail 2 days ago, and I am absolutely astounded. It's in colour. It's got nicer drawings. It's got the same great format. It's got an even better organization. It's still got a smattering of British-only usages, but I've always thought this more of a feature than a bug, and besides, how hard is it to just say, "Americans say it this way instead"?

I'm impressed with the book, and excited to start using it. Highly recommended for autodidacts and tutoring situations.

5.0 out of 5 stars As a teacher of English as a Second Language June 1, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have a large collection of English Grammar books. I have found this one to be the best. Each topic is clearly set out, one page of explanation followed by one page of exercises, indexed for easy referral. Ideal for the student who wants to work by him/herself (with answers in the back) or the teacher who wants to check the accuracy of what he/she is teaching. English is a convoluted language with many exceptions to the rule and it is important to be able to present it accurately and clearly to students the first time.Many of my students have bought this book as they consider it sets out clearly all the things they were unsure about in the past.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST english grammar book ever! February 10, 2008
Format:Paperback
English is not my native language and I know very well how difficult is to learn a second language without proper education. I have studied Murphy's books for a long time and recommend his books for everybody. There are a lot of good books out there (I have purchased a whole bunch of them!), but no one bits this one. This book is for elementary students. There are also the intermediate grammar and the advanced grammar - all them are great! It is a must have! Buy with confidence!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent book of exercises August 17, 2014
By kcscarp
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have used this book with my students with great success. The explanations of how to form and use different grammatical constructions in English are clear and precise. The images help beginners learn vocabulary and grammar at the same time. In particular, many foreign learners have difficulty with the structure of questions in English. This book provides good explanations and lots of practice. The book is intended to be for self-study, but I think it is too much for beginners to do alone. As a companion to regular classes, I can recommend it unreservedly.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is a GREAT book. June 21, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This really is a GREAT book.
It is British English as all ESL teachers will know.
It is however an American copied BLACK and WHITE version.
The pages are cheap paper - not the coated orange/red paper from the UK version.
It is a straight copy of the UK version but beware.
We ESL teachers buy durable books because lap tops, photo copy machines are not always available.
These pages will rip easily so weigh your options or download the 2nd edition off the net.

Format:Paperback
I use this book to tutor an elementary/low-level adult. I did not pick the book out--it was passed to me from her previous teacher whom moved.

The book is correct in its "To the teacher" section: the book is not a course book and is not taught progressively.

My issue with the book is it really isn't a reference book (as it claims). It lays out grammar in very, very little detail (gives example sentences and minimal explanations).

This book is aimed at "elementary" students but tries to make the information so elementary it strips too much of the information to be truly useful.

All in all, I won't use this book with another student.

...and I don't know who these people are that keep giving the book 5 stars...friends of the author?
