I have perused myriads of Grammar books, but none have been as intriguing, explanatory, and user-friendly as this book. It is an excellent reference book for all ages. It would be my dream for every family in America to have a copy of this book in their homes. If you need help on your grammar or are unsue of a particular rule, look it up in Marvin Terban's book.
