Sue Baker's view...

A three-pronged attack on faulty grammar; if you’ve never learned “proper”, despair of your children’s abilities or are wading into English as a foreign language – all three groups will find this guide to “good plain grammar” a useful place to start. Simple to follow, full of explanations, hints and tips it also has test-yourself sections to monitor progress.
