This book is prescriptive in that it prescribes how to properly speak and write English.
Bryan Kerr
And while the reading is rather dry, I also often take it along in my purse for quick reading to keep concepts fresh.

Really nice to have as a reference while working on an essay or just need to review something.

Format: Paperback
I learned English as a third language and did not get to use it professionally until well into my 20s. There were gaps and errors in my knowledge of formal English, and they had been a hindrance throughout my career.

Looking back, I regret deeply for not studying a reference guide such as this one earlier. It covers the basic grammatical rules, lists the common spelling errors and even discusses the usage of all the important words and phrases. What benefits me the most, nonetheless, is the section on punctuation. I had never quite mastered the usage of colons and semicolons, but now I feel much more comfortable using them.

I purchased the ebook version for my Nook. The formatting looks fine on the small screen. The only constant annoyance is the page number, which corresponds to the paperback version instead of the electronic one. Overall, this is a great reference for anyone who had not gone through rigorous training on professional English writing.

The inside of the book looks brand new, and even most of the cover looks new. But the spine of the book is covered in some kind of glue or plastic. This looks like a rejected product that was sold at full price. True the price at $6.60 wasn't much, but if I had seen the book prehand I wouldn't have paid more then $2 for it.

I have an English class coming up and I needed this book. It's exactly what I expected except really small. Like, extremely small. Don't get if your eyesight isn't too good.

I am an editor. This book is a highly functional resource enabling quick and easy look up of common grammar rules/guidelines.

Its compact size makes it easy to tuck into a laptop bag and carry. And while the reading is rather dry, I also often take it along in my purse for quick reading to keep concepts fresh.
