', says the compiler of this volume, 'is the backbone of English'. By that she means not just books, but newspapers, magazines, reports, internet sites etc., and the range of the extracts reflects this diversity in creative and illuminating ways. It is an exciting resource book for English teachers, but also for all those fascinated by the written word, for teachers of sociology, PSHE and citizenship. Each chapter is an exciting voyage of discovery, the students being encouraged to learn new words, to spell them correctly, and to use words in inventive and imaginative ways. The range of extracts from books is rich and diverse, and when I trialled parts of the material with my Year 9 form their response was enthusiastic. Much of the material could profitably be used with Year 10 students, and I commend this anthology heartily and unreservedly.'
's School, Bramley. 'The beauty of a textbook of this kind is that it keeps the pupil and teacher away from the slavery of set books and syllabuses. There is a serendipitous variety here which is a sheer delight. The exercises are testing and require the highest standards of critical response.'
