This is a short and easy, well-received crash course for businessmen, undergraduates, teachers and others who wish to improve their use of the English language. This lively book is also useful for those studying English as a second language. Emphasis rests on the book being a turner-on-of-lights rather than a structured reference work. The author includes a vigorous section on Gas Bag English and a chapter entitled the Ruins of High Precision which provides an account of the use of punctuation and vocabulary, simile and metaphor.
