Document PDF not compliant

This book cannot be listened without the written support, especially for the exercices and examples.
Unfortunately, the document is not a fully transcript of the book :/

An excellent and very valuable book

I liked a lot this book, it's very clear and it provides excellent explanations to understand the principles behind the word order in English covering all the aspects of English grammar. It's a big, essential and very useful help to improve my skills. Inside the book everything it's very clear a good size of the letter and spaces between lines, all is structured in a very logical way. The voice of the speaker is also very clear. There are a lot of examples and exercises and the vocabulary is very vast so I learned new words, adjectives, and verbs. I would like to find more books written by the same author. I am very happy to find this book, everything is clearer now and the book is very well structured.

Grammar Help Workbook

So this is more like an audio book for a workbook to exercise grammar and great at explaining the topic. Work best if you pull out paper and pen during question time.

Informative but...

This has been a horrendously difficult audiobook to finish. The stoic and monotonous nature of the narrator has actually diminish all the excellent content in this book. It is NOT suitable to be adapted into an audiobook.

Good But Sample Somewhat Misleading

It's not the best audio format. Lots of workbook stuff with quick definition/explanations.

The sample/beginning makes it sound like he's going to somehow make grammar fun/interesting as opposed to the rest of the books out there...

Excellent

It was really good to refresh my old knowledge about English grammar. I like to point out the rampant errors committed by the educated and brilliant people, including novelists, scientists and politicians. Regardless of the occupation, they are making too many errors. Even publishers make same dumb mistakes. School should teach the grammar in the early period.
