A necessary addition to any home or business resource collection, Modern English Usage is comprehensive and yet lucid. The didactic nature of the information is not clouded or obscured with elevated diction; no nonsense answers to everday questions about effective writing and speaking. For me it was the examples in the text that truly helped. My questions were specific, and the answers were easy to find and understand based on the multiple scenarios and examples for each. Seeing the correct answer often makes the difference. If you are an individual who relies on writing and speaking--there are very few who don't--then this is something you want sitting on the office shelf. I would recommend this to everyone wishing to both improve their writing and speaking, but also to those who use these mediums of communication on a daily basis. As one of my teachers once said, "It's ok to be ignorant, just don't display it."
