"I can unhesitatingly recommend WHEN WORDS COLLIDE to any colleague in media studies and journalism, but I've also recommended it to my colleagues in the areas of Composition/Rhetoric. I think it could easily work as an English handbook-and is actually superior to most handbooks dedicated to English."
"An engaging approach to style and grammar targeted at a college audience that has for the most part not studied or practiced grammar since middle school."
