It’s pretty rare that a book lives up to a title like The Only Grammar Book You’ll Ever Need, but Susan Thurman’s book does. Is it the best grammar book ever? No, that would be The Deluxe Transitive Vampire: A Handbook of Grammar for the Innocent, the Eager and the Doomed by Karen Elizabeth Gordo... ...more

This book is a life saver for all those that are looking to improve on their grammar! It is comprehensive, easy to use, clearly formatted and no nonsense.

THE ONLY GRAMMAR BOOK YOU’LL EVER NEED lives us to its name: it may actually be the only grammar book you’ll ever need. It is by far the most comprehensive and concise book on grammar that I’ve read, so far. The book is practically pocket size at 7 inches tall and 5.4 inches wide, yet I was surpr... ...more

The only grammar book you'll ever need...unless you're an English teacher.

I was required to read this for a school class.

Putting all my distaste for grammar rules in general aside, this book wasn't generally bad per se. It was dreadful dull, though, and all the grammar language and rules got me so twisted up that for a bit I wanted to renounce grammar completely. Some... ...more

By Jacob · ★★★★☆ · May 08, 2013
This book was actually written in a way that made reading about grammar enjoyable. It was a helpful aid for learning all of the odd little rules that you aren't taught in school. I am also terrified of having made a grammatical error in this review. ...more
