It presents English as it is actually spoken, but still sets definite standards that will improve your use and understanding of the English language. The handbook is effective for people of varying levels of skill. When a grammar rule or principle is established, a series of examples follow, beginning with easy sentences and then moving on to sentences of greater complexity.

The simple explanations of English as it is properly spoken and written by clear, concise communicators would also benefit those for whom English is a second language. The McGraw-Hill Handbook of English culled their examples from many different areas of life, which greatly enhances the readability of the handbook.
