    Suggest your friend buys a book

    I was taught that a sentence with "suggest" goes like this:

    I suggest (that) he (should) buy a book. ----> I suggest he buy a book.


    Now, when I've found this sentence, I'm confused:
    Suggest your friend buys a book.

    Re: Suggest your friend buys a book

    Most speakers of BrE don't bother with the subjunctive there.
