Review by Ben Bullock
Brief coverage of a very large variety of grammar topics, especially verb endings. Lots of things in the book, but the one-line explanations are not comprehensive enough to really grasp the usage.
This book has been useful several times in looking up things that I couldn't find elsewhere. It also has a list of colloquial contractions quite similar to the one in the AFAQ. There is a lot of useful reference stuff in this book.
