    An Extremely Important Grammar Book!

    This is the book I have been looking for to teach my children the level of grammar I was taught. The grade schools of the United States should use this book as text to make a dull subject come alive!

    I finally know what passive voice is!

    I haven't even finished this book yet, but I am so impressed I felt the need to write a review. I have already graduated from college, all the English classes I took in my school career did a lot to force me to write, but nothing to teach me how to write well. Sure, people have thrown the word preposition at me, but never has a source conveyed the message so clearly. I think one of the greatest features of this book is the way Good includes multiple explanations of all the rules. If you have tried to learn grammar before but never seem to quite get it, then this is the perfect book for you. My favorite part was when introducing the passive voice, Good listed off examples of other authors admonishing the use of passive voice by using sentences that were IN the passive voice (yes, even Strunk & White). NO WONDER I was so confused! It's great to finally have an author that leads by example!

    An excellent manual

    Because the author uses multiple examples of the grammar rules he explains, this book is especially useful. By itself, his elucidation on the use of the word 'that' is worth the price of the book.
