Bill Bryson is always learning and when he’s not travelling around the world, or compiling a book about the history of the world and all the science that goes along with it, he’s correcting all us writers on our grammar.

Just Bill, 26 letters of the alphabet, a bookful of words and several grammatical theories. It’s written as a dictionary but each section has varying amount of information along with it, from how to spell particularly tricky words to a whole interesting concept behind grammar.

I read it as a book but it will also sit on my shelf alongside the dictionaries as a reference work.
