Newly updated, the fifth edition offers fewer graphics (less distracting!) and cleaner text. Minor editing changes have occured (for example: President Obama is now referred to as former president, Barack Obama.) The new edition retains all its user friendliness! Instruction has a conversational tone. Grammar rules are easy to identify since they're printed in bold, and the extensive use of right and wrong sentences is helpful. This book covers parts of speech, building and punctuating sentences, agreement, confused and misused words, and editing. One drawback is the small number of exercise sets; there are only 21 in the whole text. Answers included. ~ Anh/Deanne
