About the Author


'If learning about the pillars of punctuation and grammar doesn't excite you, let Benjamin Dreyer change your mind ... he analyzes the English language without dipping into the drab technicalities, crafting a pleasing read for anyone who has an appreciation for the written word.' TIME MAGAZINE, BEST 10 NON-FICTION BOOKS OF 2019

'Witty and piquant ... full of jokes - and equally full of deliciously deprecating footnotes.' JEWISH CHRONICLE

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." * New York Times *
