One person's opinions of various ways of using language. Like most books of rules, it missed answering a lot of the questions I had about writing, and included details about much I was not interested in.

It's rare to see the Bolzano–Weierstrass theorem mentioned. It's essential mathematics.

It's rare to see Garner's Modern English Usage mentioned. It's essential.

Superb.

As a Brit, Americanisms can grate; as can native speakers, at times, truth be told. I bear no ill will. We share a language that diverges and yet often converges owing to our connected world. Bryan brings much of our shared language together sensitively and absorbingly.

If you love language, then this book is a thing of beauty.
