Dreyer’s English Book Review from @kleffnotes

Benjamin Dreyer is the copy chief at Random House and within the pages Dreyer’s English: An Utterly Correct Guide to Clarity and Style he shares his experience with language and editing to anyone who has to write. Now you might be thinking this book isn’t for you, but if you have to literally write anything at all in your lifetime this book will help you out tremendously. While Dreyer argues this can’t be the definitive grammar guide, as no such thing really exists, I would argue that this comes very close to being the only grammar book you’ll need to sound pitch perfect in your prose.

As a fan of Supernatural since its premiere on the now-defunct The WB network (it currently airs on The CW) on September 13, 2005, I’ve looked forward to seeing the story of Winchester brothers Sam and Dean unfold for fourteen seasons. “Saving people, hunting things, the family business” has been their motto and they’ve both gone to Hell and back to save the world. Ever wonder how it would be to be Sam and Dean? Could you handle the responsibility? Would you make the right decisions? If you were on a hunt, how would you do?
