The language in this book is archaic and American. The book seems to be popular with people learning English as a second language, because it is free. However, they will learn more quickly from a more recent book, which is written in current English.

I like the book.Surely it will help me in many fields.M greatful to the person who shared it online.m sure that it will be an act of kindness for the students who r financially weak...............thanx a lot.
