This is an excellent book, but not a text that you would read straight through; it is more of a reference book. From dangling modifiers to choosing a strong thesis, this book has the information you need. The table of contents and index are laid out nicely, and it is quite easy to find what you are looking for.

I would recommend this book to anyone who needs a good reference book on English grammar.

Format: Hardcover
This book is not conducive to a writing class. Diana Hacker's reference books are slimmer and easier to read for citation/formatting help. Stunk and White is, as always, the best, and FAR more affordable for students. This book is heavy, laborious to look through, full of useless images to "pretty up" grammar, and too expensive for a student. Using, for example, Purdue University's online writing website is a free and useful alternative. The only worthwhile chapter is Chapter 5 on Revising, Editing, and Proofreading.

When writing my dissertation I used this book to ensure that the proper guidelines were followed to pass the University's requirements and to reduce the amount of re-writes and re-submissions. Excellent choice.
