The bestselling writer’s breezy and entertaining book on tricky words. Our reviewer commented that Bryson notes not unreasonably, that he doesn’t actually have the right to tell you or me how we should use the language, but that we may find this simple guide helpful when it comes to dealing with the many problems thrown up by standard written English'.
