Worth its weight in gold,
This review is from: The Bedford Handbook (Paperback)
This is the best book on English grammar I have ever used. I purchased the fourth edition in 1991 while a freshman in college. I bought the fifth edition several years later while in graduate school and it is even better! This edition has been on my desk in every job I've ever held and has been an invaluable resource on a daily basis. I recommend this handbook to everyone who writes for school or for work. It's easy to use and easy to read.
--In memory of Father John Rechtein of St Mary's University, San Anotnio, TX-- the world's most amazing professor of English who had every rule of this handbook memorized by number and letter. We should all be so lucky to have a man so dedicated to the craft of our language and to a single book!
