I found this book in my Dad's shelf and started reading it since I wanted to improve my vocabulary. This book is like a concise dictionary, with more emphasis on the usage of the word rather than its meaning. Though it was a 1963 edition, I found most of the content relevant to current usage. Through out the book, the author presents common errors taking examples from newspapers and books.

A very helpful book if you want to start writing English.
