Reviews

English, with its often fiendish spelling, numerous homophones and homogaphs, and regional variation, can have even the most experienced writer (whether native or not) insecure. Thankfully, volumes such as The Good Word Guide are there to offer guidance...the layout of this book is very clear, making consultation very easy. The beauty of this reference work is certainly its ease of use and the fact that, while being comprehensive, it remains compact...for those needing a good, authoritative, handy reference work on how to write, The Good Word Guide will certainly be helpful. * Reference Reviews *
