This book answers many questions about very specific rules of grammar and the many exceptions that make the difference between being an intermediate speaker and and a person who can accurately use English at a higher level. The one page explanation and one page exercise format is perfect for busy people who want to continue their learning but do not have a lot of time to study pages and pages of information.
