really liked it

Roy Peter Clark has taken the dull subject of Grammar and turned it into an interesting topic that I found quite enjoyable to read.
I really had no idea that the word grammar and glamour actually meant the same thing, but I do now, thanks to the author. He tells us to embrace grammar as a box of tools not a set of rules, and encourages us to read the dictionary for fun.
I really like how he ends each chapter with a little segment called Keepsakes, reviewing the most important points of the chapter in a way that would be great for quick reference.
The authors wit and storytelling peppered throughout the chapters make this a fun book to read, who knew reading about grammar could actually be fun.
I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher in return for an honest review.
