What really should be noticed is that, usually, the more advanced the book is, the more tiring it is for the student to read; but the previous logic does not apply to this one! I feel a great pleasure in reading it and doing its exercises mainly because of one very important caracteristic that every didatic book should embody: the abundance of visual elements, especially the little comic strips and the numerous strong sayings uttered by various famous people, which are spread profusely throughout the book. Its visually rich and coloured pages shall, most certainly, banish the usual boredom that students feel in studying grammar, and please, future reader, do not worry; the contents of the book are also very rich, and I may assure any purchaser in potential that this book doesn't lack any important information; it is a thorough coverage for students who wish to get more fluent in written and spoken language alike.
The explanations for different grammar points and structures are well written and fairly easy to grasp for the most part. The book covers a large range of grammar points, and this is definitely something in favour of it. However, so do other books of a similar type.
The exercises are very limited, giving only a small amount of practice for each structure and form. In some cases, a lot was sacrificed for the sake of some excellent presentation, such as full colour pictures and so on. This lack of depth in the exercises means that students may have to supplement this book with another.
Overall, the "How English Works" is not a bad book, but I think there are better out there. This book would be good as a supplement to other books, or perhaps for a reference for students. However, I would not recommend it above all others.
I have an immigrant friend who wants to start his own business and is concerned about presenting himself in a professional manner both verbally and in writing. This book will be the perfect gift!

Regarding the Past Perfect, this text is egregiously in error, and it is not hard to divine why that is so. Read more
