This paper reviews Börjars and Burridge's book, Introducing English Grammar, which is the main data of the paper [1]. Descriptive design is the methodology we used for the review. Consequently, we employed critical analysis in reviewing the chapters of the book. The review was done in an unpretentious manner to cover all the eleven chapters of the book. The paper is segmented into four parts: introduction, the thesis, the chapters, and conclusion. We believe that the critique we have provided and the comparative analysis we have done with some of the information in other grammar books would aid readers in fathoming the contents of Introducing English Grammar, by Börjars and Burridge [1].
