Personally, I love this book. It's a great condensed version of all the grammar I've learned in my 10+ years of studying French.
Because I teach a younger crowd, I don't always use all of the tenses. This book provides just enough information to recap French grammar structure, I wouldn't use it as a tool for beginners just learning French.

However, I use some of the exercises for my Middle School students (They are studying in Discovering French Bleu 1 & Blanc 2)
When I introduce a topic I don't introduce the "blunder" listed. After a few days of review I may point out the blunder, in the interest of helping the class.

I think this is a better book for High school/College students who are interested in learning French longterm. I consider it a mini dictionary of French grammar.
  • Cordanius
I love this book, its extremely helpful for me. But I also recognize that it is not very accessible to a new speaker of French. The book assumes you know basic French and most verb tenses and grammar that most people when they are new to learning a second language, or new to learning French may not be aware of.
  • Faugami
Love, love, love this book! The concept is a great one - I am a high school French teacher and, too often, my students try to relate English grammar to French for a direct (and often incorrect) translation. To gear this toward anglophone helps so much. The lists are clear and concise, and most of the grammar "blunders" are very common ones that need to be addressed.

Buy this book if you are looking to improve your French and sound more like a native speaker; you won't be disappointed!
  • Cordanara
This is a great refresher to help anyone who studied French in school but wants to improve the accuracy of their grammar. The examples of "blunders" are a great way to illustrate to those experienced in speaking French of the inadvertent errors they may be making. For a grammar book, kept my attention better than I thought.
  • Kulwes
This book is a very good guide for Americans who
want to know the nuts and bolts of the French language.
It's not a book for beginners though. It seems better
suited for intermediate students and beyond.
  • Ximinon
Well-done take on "getting it", the little things of French which taken together make a person comfortable (after lots of practice!) with the language.
  • Araath
Great book to improve your lexicon, but you need to know some French language. This is not for the beginner.
This is not a textbook for raw beginners, but if you are an English speaker already learning French, you need this book right now. I am a firm believer in language materials that take into account your native language (none of this Rosetta Stone 'natural learning' nonsense... I speak English, let's take advantage of that!).

Unlike typical textbooks, it organizes all the rules logically (for example, when it talks about definite and indefinite articles, it talks about ALL the rules and exceptions for their use in one place, in much more detail than an introductory textbook, focussing on mistakes that English speakers are particularly likely to make).

I used to use Glanville's Comprehensive French Grammar for this purpose, but this book is much more user friendly.
