I have written professionally under deadline for several decades, and certainly could have used 'The Blue Book on Grammar and Punctuation' years ago (when presumably it was first offered). If only I had only known! I find this manual to be a first-rate, well-structured, intuitive guide for all types of writing assignments that now serves as a quick and handy reference for me (perhaps on more occasions than I'd like to admit) -- as well as providing an apt shelf companion for my older, dog-eared Associated Press style book. Physically publishing the Blue Book a bit larger than a lot of other, smaller manuals was a welcomed touch (literally), since the bigger format provides for easier, faster thumb- thru access also, its less-condensed, more appealing layout works well, and speedily -- especially when stress- inducing deadlines loom only minutes ahead. I'm not sure what the first edition of this worthy book was like, but this 10th edition is a keeper. It was clearly created by, and for, writers of the 21st century and for all us lovers of our ever-evolving English language.

I recommend this book to all immigrants and teachers. It lives to its title - very easy to use by clarifying grammar rules and providing examples - and the quizzes are great.

Excellent support for parents, grandparents and even older siblings who are trying to learn and help younger children learn those overwhelming RULES. Great refresher course and confidence builder for anyone that has felt like they were 'left behind'. Also, helps remove the frustration of trying to understand what the teacher is actually trying to communicate.

I found this book useful. I am a non-native English speaker, it just felt natural the way things are explained in the book. It corrects common mistakes and helps to write in proper English.

I have purchased this book for my granddaughter who is graduating from 8th grade in June. I felt this book would be of great help to her in her high school years. I have not read the book, but in skimming it, I feel Lindsay will find it very useful in high school
