Review:

'English is such an irregular language. Its arcane rules about articles, for example, are difficult for even native English speakers - and I, for one, have a tough time explaining those rules to students...Mike Gandon takes on these challenges in a readable, accessible manner. For my money, the section on articles (Chap. 4, pp. 30-34) is worth the price of the book. Gandon uses examples, canvassing possible erroneous usages and explaining clearly why they're incorrect before offering his "Rewrite" - the correct answer. He does this patiently, with repeated line-by-line analyses of real news stories. An English-as-a-second-language writer can refer back to them time and time again until correct idiomatic usage becomes second nature...All in all, English for International Journalists is a commendable package.' Peter H. Martyn, Canadian Journal for Media Studies
