Dreyer’s English: An Utterly Correct Guide to Clarity and Style by Benjamin Dreyer

If you write for a living, as a hobby, as therapy, as a spiritual exercise; if you are a student or a teacher, you will want this book on your shelf.  Dreyer is the top-dog editor at Random House.

Grammars naturally have a school-master-scolding tone about them, but this one is washed in enough good humor, humility, and common sense to make it not only a valuable reference to current usage, but an entertaining read as well.

Reader/writers will find confusions clarified,  memory blocks exposed, assumptions corrected and confirmed. It’s a funhouse and a playground for those who think about usage and grammar.
