    Great English Reminder

    Over the course of my lifetime, I come to realize that I misuse words. I wanted to get a "cliff note" version of the basics, and this book is it. Easy to read chapters, examples and little "quizzes" help get my grammar back up to speed.

    I would recommend this book for people in high school, college or any one else who needs a friendly refresher on the English Language.

    An outstanding work

    The Little Red Writing Book is simply one of the best books published on the topic of writing. Brandon Royal's handy book is perfect for students, professionals, and others who want to improve their writing skills. Royal's text is also an excellent reference guide if you want to brush up on grammatical and style rules that you may have forgotten in the years after your formal education. Overall, the Little Red Writing book is one of the most useful texts I have used for essay writing.

    No waffle here!

    'Avoid needless words,' say Strunk & White in 'The Elements of Style'. Many reference books for writers break this rule immediately. Brandon Royal manages to keep his 'Little Red Writing Book' concise. A handsome hardcover book with illustrations that take away some of the tedium present in plain texts. I heartily recommend it

    Bravo!

    They say you can't judge a book by its cover. But the material inside this book is every bit the equal of its beautiful covering. Bravo. I toast the author and his publisher.

The lavishly presented hardcover book invites students and others to be drawn into its pages of rules and tips. If you are looking for a timeless gift for anyone who writes, this is the book. Charts, examples and exercises make the Little Red Writing Book an essential addition to any writing collection.
