What People are Saying About This

Victory Crayne
Brandon Royal's The Little Gold Grammar Book is a great book to learn the basic rules of grammar. I wholeheartedly recommend it not only for those who are learning English for the first time, but also for those who want a really solid and easy to understand refresher course. I regularly recommend it to my writing clients who need a touch up after many years away from English classes. (Victory Crayne,
