Reviews

'I found this neat workbook challenging, often puzzling, ultimately rewarding. A fresh broom making short shrift of my cobwebs! I see English grammar now in a new way. Hudson is refreshing in his indifference to ancient taboos, of split infinitives and the like. This is a stimulating book for practical class teaching and for use by individuals. It is recommended for lending stock.' - Language & Literature
