To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
We all come across comments about how many goods we buy are overpackaged - that also applies to this book. I found it very disappointing after having read "Eats shoots and leaves" and I do not recommend it. Grossly overpriced!
Buy all of Lynne Truss's books. Seriously! Okay, I'm a grammar nerd, I admit it. I got Eats, Shoots and Leaves and just loved it. Then, I learned about her "picture books." These visually show the difference in meaning of a hyphen or period or other punctuation. You can look at pictures side by side--same sentence, different punctuation. Perfect for all classrooms, great gift for coworkers, even college students. Great for grammar lesson plans (have kids make and draw their own). Just remember that there are a few differences between English grammar rules in America and the UK.
Too many repeats from the other books. I purchased three different titles thinking that they would provide lots of examples to use with my students, but among the 3 books, most of it overlaps at least once, sometimes even more than that.
