This book is a must-have for anyone with those nagging doubts about punctation, spelling, or tricky grammar constructions. There were so many points that I had either forgotten or had simply never understood while at school and I loved having them explained in this simple, concise manner. I am still no editor, but if I need help, I know where to look. The clear layout makes quick checks a snap. I strongly recommend this book to high school seniors embarking on their personal essay writing tasks that are a basic requirement for college acceptance. Moreover, the book is small enough that it can stay in a dorm room for easy reference while writing those term papers or next to a computer for anyone to grab. We all know computer grammar checkers are not perfect, so this book is handy to have around. Above all, the author has managed to make a dry subject like English grammar pleasant to read.

Remember all the stuff your English teacher taught you? Exactly. This book provides a memory boost to help professional writers. (And for reference book geeks like me!)
