    I would recommend this book to anyone who does a lot of writing It has excellent well researched advice on the proper usage of a number of English words and phrases It is very descriptivist that is rather than simply deferring to an expert's opinion the researchers actually search through numerous archives of English literature journalism etc as well as other usage guides to formulate their recommendations

    How could I not love a book that answers my most burning usage uestions and also helps me win arguments? I usually have to just make believe an opponent for these arguments because all the real people are afraid to fight with me about this stuff but it still gives me a great sense of triumph when I win which I ALWAYS do
