“English Bites! My ‘Fullproof’ English Learning Formula” by Manish Gupta as the title suggests is about English as a language and somewhat about how to master it for students and the like. So the book is about how to work on fluency, vocabulary and some tips with reference to written English. That in its truest form so to say is the summary or the gist of the book. To a large extent, the hilarious take on the language works for the book. Manish knows how to write and the language is simple and breezy. The examples with the words also are not difficult to understand and that is quite commendable when you set off writing a book of this nature.
What do not work are the footnotes at every page. They almost do anything for my reading experience, but we also understand the need for them in this kind of a book. The book promises that you learn close to 1000 new words and rightly so. Having said all of this, this book is only recommend o people who want to know more about how to master the language for whatever academic purposes. As a read, it is fun in places and in others it is mostly average.
English Bites!: My Fullproof English Learning Formula is a guidebook to help readers master the English language. This book is filled with autobiographical experiences, footnotes, funny anecdotes, and a range of new words and their usage.
Summary Of The Book
English Bites!: My Fullproof English Learning Formula, published in 2012, has been designed to help readers overcome language barriers, and to learn fluent English. The author speaks about his own experiences, and explains how he used to be a tongue-tied schoolboy. However, over time he developed his foothold over the English language, and finally became a well-versed banker. This book has a autobiographical feel to it, as it is filled with humorous stories of Gupta’s experiences and misadventures with the Queen’s language.
The author promises that readers of English Bites!: My Fullproof English Learning Formula will be able to inculcate more than a thousand new words in their vocabulary through easy and effective techniques. The differences between similar sounding words are also explained, in addition to descriptions about when and where to use them. Delightful incidences have been incorporated to showcase how terms can have different meanings in different situations. Furthermore, meanings of new words are mentioned at the footer of each page. In addition to this, English Bites!: My Fullproof English Learning Formula also contains trivia which ranges from B-school jargon to origin of words to brand names, and more. This guidebook is not a traditional self-help book. Jokes, anecdotes, and funny illustrations keep the reader’s interest in place, and makes learning fun.
This book can be used by candidates of CAT/GRE/XAT/GMAT, those who wish to develop a better command over English, and any language enthusiast. English Bites!: My Fullproof English Learning Formula, the author’s debut work, is the perfect guide to improve one’s verbal abilities.

An inspiring readManish Gupta is an honest, forthright and gregarious banker who has labored over the book for close to two decades. And he doesn't disappoint. The text is anecdotal and racy and words along with some interesting trivia keep popping out as you flip through the book. Read it not just to improve your word power or ken, but also as a work that reflects the predicament of an average Indian student for whom learning the nuances of English language is as important as scoring well in academics, and how it can become a process of joyful self learning as Manish, a glib talker now, discovered

Amazing Book - A must read!Usually am awry of books which claim to teach English or for that matter even the Spoken English classes as I firmly believe it is something that cannot be taught. It can be only learnt on your own and this book proved me wrong.

An excellent book!As some wise man had quipped - It is better to learn from others mistakes than from your own. Manish Gupta through his English Bites not only explains the meaning of 'faux pas' but also lists down several of the ones that he seems to have committed. It is these tales that make the book an interesting read. A great treasure for the ones who feel challenged with English and a refresher for those who think they know (you are sure to learn something new).

HAVE A BITE, TASTE THE DIFFERENCE!!!Before reading this book, it would be good if one has a fair idea as to what this book is all about. Certainly, it is not a book that you can pick on a lazy Sunday, whereas if you are a non-native speaker of English and you look forward to having that polished edge that differentiates a good speaker and an average speaker, then look no further!

Exaggerationif you're seriously looking to increase your word power, then this book is definitely not for you. Author has mistakenly put wrong title for his auto-biography. However, t could be a good read but not for what title is intended for.

Worthy of the bucks...You are making a major folly considering this book an academic book. It is way more fun than that.
