Reviews

  • "An utterly delightful book to read, Dreyer's English will stand among the classics on how to use the English language properly."

    Elizabeth Strout
  • "A mind-blower--sure to jumpstart any writing project, just by exposing you, the writer, to Dreyer's astonishing level of sentence-awareness."

    George Saunders
  • "On every page, the serious stuff is spiced with his distinctive humour… This is what to look for in a language book: authority without arrogance. There is always more to learn."

    The Economist
  • "The joy of Dreyer’s English is that it’s written by an editor who so clearly loves words, has a sense of humour and prizes clarity over nit-picking"

    Financial Times
  • "Meet the guardian of grammar who wants to help you be a better writer. Benjamin Dreyer sees language the way an epicure sees food. And he finds sloppiness everywhere he looks."
