It’s pretty rare that a book lives up to a title like The Only Grammar Book You’ll Ever Need, but Susan Thurman’s book does. Is it the best grammar book ever? No, that would be The Deluxe Transitive Vampire: A Handbook of Grammar for the Innocent, the Eager and the Doomed by Karen Elizabeth Gordon, but, in truth, if you didn’t have any other grammar guide, you’d be, for the most part, eloquent and error-free.

Now, if there were only a guide to producing good ideas about which to write.

This book is a life saver for all those that are looking to improve on their grammar! It is comprehensive, easy to use, clearly formatted and no nonsense. I love the bullets, the examples are easy to understand; and although, it has very few exercises, I found that the small size of the book makes it easier to flip through and reference back quickly! Big bonus points for the easily misused words, located at the beginning of chapter one. I also must add, that although, grammar is normally a dull...more

THE ONLY GRAMMAR BOOK YOU’LL EVER NEED lives us to its name: it may actually be the only grammar book you’ll ever need. It is by far the most comprehensive and concise book on grammar that I’ve read, so far. The book is practically pocket size at 7 inches tall and 5.4 inches wide, yet I was surprised at how much content was shoved inside.

While occasionally slipping in some light humor, the authors stick to their succinct approach: offering a definition with bolded terms, followed by charted exam...more

As a guidebook to the esoteric language of grammar, I thought it was a relatively satisfying read. The Only Grammar Book You'll Ever Need: A One-Stop Source for Every Writing Assignment would be a dry read for most people, but I found it extraordinarily meaningful because I never properly learned the rules of grammar. The book gave meaning and explanation to the most mundane rules; some of these rules were pronoun antecedent agreement, dangling modifiers, prepositional phrases, but there were m...more

I was required to read this for a school class.

Putting all my distaste for grammar rules in general aside, this book wasn't generally bad per se. It was dreadful dull, though, and all the grammar language and rules got me so twisted up that for a bit I wanted to renounce grammar completely. Somehow I managed to make it through (deadlines are extremely threatening, you know...).

This book is for someone who does not understand grammar. I'm pretty sure I've got the basic concept of the thing ;P an...more
It was okay. It was a grammar book, but it did explain various parts of speech and how to use them fairly well. I don't think there is a way to talk about parts of speech without making it sound like chaos, but in general thumbs up to this book. I'm not sure it's the only grammar book I'll ever need, but it was one that I'm glad I read.
This book was actually written in a way that made reading about grammar enjoyable. It was a helpful aid for learning all of the odd little rules that you aren't taught in school. I am also terrified of having made a grammatical error in this review.

It is worth rereading to get all the facts and nmeumonics. The Science and Bible sections interest me the most, but every page is worth knowing as base for future learning.
The many book me came across that completely lives up to its name? This book gots me through my "Professional Editing" classess.

Very good reference to keep handy.
Although this encompasses most grammar rules, it is a dry read and can be hard to get through.
