    One thought on “Gwynne's Grammar: The Ultimate Introduction to Grammar and the Writing of Good English. Incorporating also Strunk’s Guide to Style.”

    1. All the bad stereotypes of dusty old grammarians are here. Civilisation will collapse without grammar, we're told in deadly earnest. If the sex of a subject isn't known, NEVER use "they". No, use "he" instead (sorry women!). Gwynne doesn't even consider the possibility of mixing hes and shes to rectify this. It all honks of Daily Mail and public schools. I felt like mucking up my grammar for a week in protest.Reading this felt like being lectured by a 1930s schoolmaster. Give me Strunk and White [...]

    2. Gwynne's grammar is a fine guide to the presentation of crisp language. The emphasis is very much on the verbal, expressed component of communication, which is fine. Enthusiasts of non-verbal modes of projection who may may be apt to find wordy-thingeys sometimes referred to as neat sentence constructions rather vulgar might read this book and utter: "Dude! You're spoilin' my vibe!" This sentiment notwithstanding, I would recommend this book.

    3. An excellent guide that is easy to read. My one complaint is the author's strange insistence that the Oxford comma is incorrect.

    4. Would be higher if he didn't get quite so upset about things. That said, it is an excellent guide that complements Strunk very well.
