Gwynne’s Grammar has sat at the top of the bestseller lists for most of the year. Why? Because most of us have the nagging doubt that our English ain’t what it might be. Harry Mount (Amo, Amas, Amat) is a fellow stickler for good grammar, not because he’s pedantic but because he believes good English helps people in all aspects of their lives, especially their careers. Toby Young (How to Lose Friends and Alienate People) has made grammar the backbone of his new West London Free School with the conviction it will place his pupils in the top tier of academic achievement.
