1.0 étoiles sur 5 How to lose time reading this 14 août 2013
Format:Format Kindle
As a not native english speaker, I just have to say this book is not worth the read.
Call me pedant if you want, but If you wish to do something well, you have to work on it, not rely on some easy techniques to seem brilliant in society, which really is being pedant.
Don't waste your time on this one, this is my opinion.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful Piece of Information 13 octobre 2013
Par Shashikant Nishant Sharma - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The author has attempted to present his experiences in the form of book to help readers in developing a strong communication skills for effective use of the opportunities. Many opportunities are lost due to the lack of good communication skills. The book is a treasure of knowledge which can be tapped for fullest potential. The easy to understand language used by the author is something which kept me glued to the book till I finished it.
I will recommend readers to read this book and use the learnt art of communication in a effective manner.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A 1910 version with lots of goodies 14 septembre 2013

This is a great book to use for many purposes but I needed a current version to assist me with a writing course. However, the book will be good reference material as I progress in a writing class.

It is a difficult non intuitive. For even an accomplished speaker of english it requires a stubborn determination to arrive at a useful point

"Every person of intelligence should be able to use his mother tongue correctly. It only requires a little pains, a little care, a little study to enable one to do so, and the recompense is great."

PROs:

* Lots of good information without wasted words

* Contains more than just grammar, such as the history of the English language

* Huge list of the best authors, poets, and books

CONs:

* Some outdated usage of words, such as "thou" and "thee" (was written in 1917)

* Entire sections are now almost irrelevant, such as the letter writing section

* Not enough examples to solidify definitions and usage

* Becomes tedious and hard to concentrate on towards the middle of the book

* Much of the advice is common sense, such as "read the masters"

"In employing the long sentence the inexperienced writer should not strain after the heavy, ponderous type. Johnson and Carlyle used such a type, but remember, an ordinary mortal cannot wield the sledge hammer of a giant. Johnson and Carlyle were intellectual giants and few can hope to stand on the same literary pedestal."

The book starts out as a nice refresher on the parts of speech, something almost all of us learn but few remember. The usage of these words, such as adverbs and prepositions, came back to me with relative ease after reading the short definitions provided. The problems arose when the book got into more technical detail, such as instead of simply "verbs", there are "transitive/intransitive verbs" + the tenses, etc. One example to describe what a noun is is fine, but only one example for the more tedious parts of speech simply isn't enough. It got to the point where I was lost because he was using terms that he didn't solidify into the reader's mind, making me skim large portions of the book.

The first half of the book is pretty much grammar review, then it goes into letter writing, which is almost completely useless today. The most interesting part of the book was actually the end where it went over the history of the English language and how it developed. There is also a very large section where he goes through the works of literary giants such as Shakespeare and Milton and shows that they are surprisingly filled with mistakes that the average person wouldn't notice. This part, although slightly interesting, was much too pedantic for me.

My favorite part of the book was actually the short list of greatest authors, poets, and books. The problem is, he merely listed names instead of explaining why they were included. It would have been nice to hear his reasoning on why he chose who he chose, such as what makes each writer uniquely great, or what makes certain books stand above the rest.

Overall, I would not recommend this book unless you absolutely don't want to spend any money. There are probably far better and more updated books for less than $3. The book does a lot of things, but none of them particularly well, and too much of it is useless for the modern reader.

"In the works of Shakespeare, the most wonderful genius the world has ever known, there is the enormous number of 15,000 different words, but almost 10,000 of them are obsolete or meaningless today."

3.0 étoiles sur 5 very boring. You can learn from it 8 novembre 2014
Par Donald Dustin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This teaching method is very old school, very dry, very boring.

You can learn from it, but it's not very exciting. It is free.

Grammar Girl's" Quick & Dirty Grammar" is so much better & available also on Kindle e-book format. Her podcast lessons are free from Apple i-Tunes & her voice is very pleasing.

Cost for the book is about $10.
