As a non-native speaker of English, I haven't been completely satisfied with any description of English by native speakers, usually based on their own 'feelings'. This book is entirely different from traditional grammar books in that it offers all readers clear evidence on which the authers' theories are based. Everyday I read a couple of pages of this book before going to bed.
