Many adults in the workplace today were not taught grammar in primary school, let alone secondary school. So if you are unsure about where to use an apostrophe (or not), when a word should be capitalised, how to treat quotations and lists or when to use a hyphen and so on, then this would seem to be the ideal guide. As well as a copy for yourself, get one for the kids too. Recommended.
