    About "Caroline Taggart"

    1. Caroline Taggart

      I was an editor for 30 years before Michael O Mara Books asked me to write what became I Used to Know That I think its success took everyone by surprise it certainly did me but it led to my writing a lot of other books and finally, after about three years, feeling able to tell people I was an author It s a nice feeling Until recently the book I was most proud of was The Book of London Place Names Ebury , partly because I am passionate about London and partly because, having written ten or so books before that, I finally felt I was getting the hang of it Now I have to confess I m really excited by my first venture into continuous narrative For A Slice of Britain around the country by cake AA I travelled the country investigating, writing about and eating cake From Cornish Saffron Cake to Aberdeen Butteries, I interviewed about 25 people who are baking cakes, biscuits and buns that are unique to their region, part of their heritage and pretty darned delicious The Sunday Times reviewed it and described me as engaging, greedy and droll , which pleased me enormously.

    1. Basic and simple but quite useful especially if English is not your native language. It's a very pretty book as well, nothing garish to look at like most grammar/English books you'll find.


    2. Purchased this book thinking it was a humour book, however I was not disappointed as it did teach me about grammar and the english language. I would recommend this one to people who use English as a second language as it is called one of the most difficult in the world today. Hopefully this book will help those learning grasp the language more clearly.


    3. I'm extremely meticulous and careful with the way I speak and use English and this book does enough to satisfy my need for correctness that I don't find everyday when I hear or read other people. It has everything I'd tell others and everything I'd like to keep as a reminder for myself. Loved it!



    4. A witty, accurate & enlightening take on the proper use of the British language. Honestly, anyone who speaks English could benefit from this book.



    5. A good review of the English language and its complex grammar. Written as if you were having tea with a very knowledgeable friend.


    6. Her Ladyship is quite passionate about her language. It is good to have a refresher from time to time though.
