Roy Peter Clark, while sometimes overly chirpy in his prose, keeps the reader involved as he marches his teaching along at a quick pace that serves to avoid boredom, while helping to make his grammar points stick in one's mind. Mr. Clark has a command of the rules of writing good English and offers a number of helpful quick tips to those who take the time to read this book.
I encourage those interested in this general subject area also to purchase and read Carol Fisher Saller's "The Subversive Copy Editor" (2009).
This seemed to me a perfect guide for my 14-year old nephew, who loves to write and is interested in how to do it. The book is accessible and fun to read. It is also very well structured as a learning aid: the chapters are short and focussed, and the "keepsake" sections at the end of each chapter are helpful summaries.
For a long-term language maven, it is an enjoyable read, but may not add that much new information. Also, the author does have some crotchets (like most writers on grammar) and some of these can become irritating. Finally, the author is very much there in this book, which can get in the way of the information he is providing.
I also love what he says about Spelling being magical (to cast a spell). There are some interesting ideas worth checking out in here if this is something you're considering checking out. Recommend it.
