Large parts of this book are helpful and make sense. However, the book also states that there are only six coordinating conjunctions, and says that "we" and "they" are both subject pronouns and object pronouns. Neither of these things are true, and I didn't bother to read any further in this book. If you're going to write a grammar book, you have to know your grammar. The reviewer who gave the book five stars misspelled and capitalized four words incorrectly in his or her review, and is probably now doing a lot of other things wrong, too, as a result of using this book.
From reading this book from the Pierce County Library,(Tacoma WA) this is definately a good book for writers referance on how a sentence works. I Highly Recommend it.
