Review: I as a reader happy to read English Bites! By Manish Gupta. It’s always good to learn new words. As a reviewer you should have a good command on English Vocabulary so this book really helped me to learn new words. The cover of the book is really funny but it generates interest to read the book. The title and Blurb are apt for the readers. It clearly mentions that this book is for the beginners as well as for the people who want to learn English and increase their vocabulary knowledge. This book is also good for all those who want to give Entrance exams for the professional courses like Gmat/ Cat and other courses. There is no story in the book. It’s a pure narration and good command on English. The Author had worked really hard on all the facts and words related to English. It’s really commendable. There are lots of new words and their usage and meaning which is written by Author’s own experience. I as a reader enjoyed reading it. There are incidents from Author’s old days which are funny but really helped us to know the insight of the English language.
Overall it is a book for all the readers. It is not a dictionary but a simple guide to learn new words with the real life experiences. A must read book. Good luck Author for a wonderful and meaningful book.
