About the Book

This book is essentially a sequel to Francis A. Andrew’s earlier book, “Who Said English Grammar Was Boring?” The “sequel” begins by devoting a few chapters to some grammar points and continues with explanations and examples of twenty three essay types. As well as example essays, each unit provides reading passages which are unrelated to the essay type. The reason for this is to encourage students to read widely and thus to see reading and writing as interconnected and inter-related skills.
