Outstanding textbook on writing. I have just had an opportunity to reread it, actually study it and I am truly amazed at the interesting new information Baker adds. It is itself well written and one feels that in using this book one has a personal teacher interest in his or her progress. Read full review

For anyone wishing to be an effective writer AND speaker,
this is the book to have. This explains every possible technique
one needs to have to not only understand but use the English
language. Itis excellent.
