Description of this Book

If you've reached a position that requires you to bash out high-quality letters and reports, then Grammar Rules is a must for your top drawer. Straight talking and methodical, Craig Shrives draws on his experience as a through-the-ranks officer in the British Intelligence Corps to present a wonderfully light-hearted and easily digestible book. Suitable for Brits and Americans, this comprehensive grammar-reference book offers well-crafted 'grammar lite' explanations as well as hundreds of tips and workarounds. But, if you want to soak yourself in English grammar, it allows you to do that too. Grammar Rules is packed with real-life examples and keeps you engaged with a wealth of great quotations from Homer (the Greek) to Homer (the Simpson).
