REA's Handbook of English Grammar, Style, and Writing Features hundreds of examples illustrating correct and incorrect usage The ability to write and speak correctly and effectively is a prerequisite for doing well in all subjects, including the physical and social sciences, math, and the liberal arts. Writing and speaking skills become even more important when seeking a job and trying to succeed in a chosen career. English books currently available usually explain a standard rule or definition in a few pages. They often are written by a professional grammarian who has a technical insight into the subject not shared by students. The explanation is often written in an abstract manner which leaves the student confused as to the practical application of the rule. The small number of examples found in other books are too few to enable the student to obtain a thorough grasp of grammatical rules and concepts. This straightforward, easy-to-understand Handbook of English does not use the difficult technical jargon usually found in English grammar books. Instead, this Handbook provides hundreds of examples to illustrate in specific detail what is proper in all areas of English grammar, style, and writing. Learning exercises are provided at the end of every chapter for a thorough review of the concepts covered in the chapter. We have made every effort to make this the best book possible. Our paper is opaque, with minimal show-through; it will not discolor or become brittle with age. Pages will not drop out. The binding will not crack or split. This is a permanent book.Fogiel, M. is the author of 'Rea's Handbook of English Grammar, Style, and Writing' with ISBN 9780878915521 and ISBN 0878915524.
