From the Inside Flap:

(back cover)
Students for whom English is their second language quickly discover that unlike their native tongue, English possesses many prepositions that are used in many different ways. Most other languages have relatively few prepositions, each of them serving many different purposes in communicating intended ideas. English is different--and this book demonstrates exactly how different it is by examining more than 60 commonly used English prepositions. You will find practical, easy-to-understand guidelines for correct preposition usage, supplemented with hundreds of example sentences that demonstrate various ways in which they are used.
