This is the sort of book I wish I'd had at school. For whatever reason, in the 80s UK, the school education policy had gone away from grammar towards content of ideas - get the story out and the grammar can be worried about later... much, much later. In fact, many children of my generation were not taught proper grammar and remain ignorant about this subject today. I was one of those kids.

It was hard work and effort on my part to learn correct grammar. I am not perfect, nor do I claim to be; but if one were to compare my written English of just a few years ago to that written today, there are big differences.

English Grammar for Dummies starts at the very basics (as one should) and increases your grammar skills as you work through the book. The book finishes with "Improving your writing style" which although not strictly grammar, does help to make your writing far more readable than would be otherwise. The final word (well, the last two chapters) are ten over-corrections and ten errors to avoid.

The book contains exercises to help reinforce your new-found skills - the answers are in the back - so you can check your progress.

The book, although American (hence American spellings throughout) is highly recommended to anyone who wishes to improve their grammar. I will be giving my copy to my daughter to improve her written English. I am sure that this book will be suitable for a 13 year old.
