Correct my English/What book do you recommend?

Correct my English/What book do you recommend?<o:p></o:p>

 Hi! I am Kaz from Japan.I started studying English which I quit so many years ago again.

I can understand news and books, I can talk, but I make so many mistakes.
The purpose of learning is I would like to talk and write as much as native speaker do.

I started to think if I master one book fully, I will be able to tell which usage is proper for what I want to explain.
Do you have any good books for grammar’s study or good books which I can learn beautiful and correct usage of English? 
Please correct my English above or/ and let me know what book you recommend.

Thank you!<o:p></o:p>

Don't bother with any grammar books, your English is almost great, except you should've used "does" instead if "do" in a sentence about native speaker (because one object is singular). But that's a silly mistake.

All you need is expanding your vocabulary, I suggest you start reading books in English on e-reader (it's easy to tap a word to look it up if you don't know the meaning). While reading books you're interested in, you will gradually achieve grammar intuition, more polished and refined English skill. Believe me, this is the only thing you actually need.

What kind of English are you trying to learn? (USA English, UK English etc.) This might affect word choices and grammatical flow, so it may help to stick to only one of these. In the case of UK English, I would recommend using books designed for ESOL courses. (English as a second language.) If for another English-speaking country, I'd reccomend reading novels only by accomplished authors from that country! Good luck!

You mean do what native speakers do?

Thank you for trying to share your idea.
