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 *
Brilliant * Guardian *
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 *
