    Default sentence structure

    I wrote the book for the A Level (18+) exams in Hebrew, and the book you are holding now in your hands.
    Is the above sentence grammatical?

    It's fine, if you are speaking of two different books, though you don't need the comma. You could, if you wished, add 'both' after 'I wrote'.

    Hello.
    Please allow me to ask a question.

    If it is the same book, would you say "I wrote the book for the A Level exams in Hebrew, and it is the book you are holding now in your hands."? Or even "... A Level exams in Hebrew, the book you are holding now in your hands."?
    (I'm not sure about the latter.)

    Both are fine.
