5.0 out of 5 stars Not Exhaustive, but still a powerful tool in your tool-box
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 July 2020
A writer's tool-box needs many different tools in it to cover every eventuality. This little book has quickly become a go-to resource that I would not be without while I write and edit my work. Frequently I find myself supplementing it with other resources, but that is alright. This little book has managed to answer many questions for me. Used sensibly and alongside other resources such as a decent dictionary it is valuable addition to my resuorces that I would not be without. I highly recommend it.
