    Worth every penny! Best reference!

    This is the best purchase I have made in a long time. I was looking for a reference book for myself or to help friends & others with punctuation, grammar and usage, and now I have a solid reference that explains the rules and shows examples. There are too many inconsistencies in references found online. This over 600-page easy-to-use book is very thorough and is similar to a high school grammar & usage book without the exercises. It's a perfect reference for educators, writing important letters, essays, reports, or just brushing up on the conventions of our language.
