There isn't much I can say that hasn't already been said about this book, just get it! It's well organized and contains bits of info for those on the run. An excellent reference or something to read all the way through.
Should be a part of every writer's library.
Mr Provost filled the book with examples that are easy to understand and he had styled the book in a reader friendly and comprehensive format.
You could read the book from page 1 to the end and undergo the systematic built up to better writing or you could easily refer to the relevant sections without feeling lost.
The only shortcoming of this book it that it is concise and could not provide more in depth explanation on some terms like "normative" and "objective" use of noun. However, Mr Provost has done a wonderful job of balancing the need of the general public to be a good writer against that of a linguist.
