This book is unbelievably comprehensive, and something no English teacher or student should be without. I don't think there's a credible aspect of English grammar that isn't covered in this book. I have given the second edition four stars due to the fact that several of my classmates have found rather important typographical errors that could throw an unaware reader off track. Looking forward to the third edition having corrections.
