If you have not stuck your nose into this book, you do not own it and have no idea what a treasure and how much fun it is. It is the perfect complement to Follett's MODERN AMERICAN USAGE. They are both patterned in much the same way and have their idiosyncrasies that are delightful. With the new Garner's MODERN AMERICAN USAGE as a third source, you'd be all set with the very best. All other such references pale in comparison. My Follett and Fowler's after forty years still hold together and up extremely well, especially with scores of pieces of paper poking out the top and side.
Fowler's is fun to compare with Follett. What makes the books so much fun is that they're meant to be read randomly, as words and problems in usage occur to you and then you begin to poke around to other things in them. This is the way one's reading in general should go. Let one thing lead to another as your nose takes you. You'll sniff out some gems.
