This guide by Joseph Devlin offers priceless advice on the basics of grammar and style. For anyone looking to improve his or her mastery of the quirky English language, Devlin's work offers many riches. Letter writing was so much more dignified back when Devlin wrote this book in 1910. He gives great example sentences and lots of tips that are still useful today. Some of the information may be a little outdated, but instead of being useless it just shows how far the craft has fallen in the last century. None the less, the theories and principles found in these pages are priceless, and if used properly, are sure to reward the reader with a confident presence and an attentive audience.
