'Paul Simpson’s Stylistics is a most helpful resource from which EFL learners as well as native speakers of English will benefit. Profound yet exceptionally reader-friendly, the book is an invaluable guide for both students and teachers who are logically led from mastering basics in Introduction, through more advanced applications of the subject in Development, to "field" examples in Exploration and encouragement to read and think more in Extension sections.'
