Between two modest covers you’ll find both food for thought and examples to be emulated. This was truly a colloquium where minds met and understand and purpose developed. Anyone engaged in teaching English grammar will find many years of resources in The Power of Grammar, whether that teaching is in a classroom or a home. The Power of Grammar is a powerhouse in and of itself.

Very highly recommended.
