Rules for Writers review,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rules for Writers (Spiral-bound)
I purchased this book to verify grammar and punctuation use in a novel that I was reviewing and proofreading for a local author. I found this book to be easy to use to find information that I was seeking and to confirm/deny grammar and punctuation rules that I questioned.Rules for Writers This book is also used in many college writing courses and, of course, is recommended by college English instructors.

Thank you very much for specifying that this book is useful in terms of grammar and punctuation. That's exactly what I'm looking for.
In some cases, there are contradictory explanations from different books. I trust Dianne Hacker because she is a teacher. If her explanations are wrong, certainly her students would express their opinions here.
