First Sentence
EVEN THOUGH MY SHOW is called "Grammar Girl," the secret is that it's not usually grammar that confounds people—it's usage. Read the first page

She makes the nitty gritty of writing accessible and fun. She also consults from a wide range of references, so that makes her feel pretty reliable. It's a nice read, and I recommend it highly for editors and/or students.

This book approches grammar in a fun way, and is easy to understand. I really enjoyed reading it and feel that I have a slightly better grip on my grammar already, and I have only read a few of the chapters.

When I first saw the grammar girl series I grabbed a few at once and this is one of the books I grabbed. This book is great and has helped me to understand and use these tips in my daily life and writing.

Format: Paperback
This excellent book makes a wonderful reference book and is also fun to read cover to cover.

Do you ever wonder which you should use, E.G. or I.E.? I always thought they could be used interchangeably. Actually they can't. I.E. stands for "that is" or "in other words" while E.G. means "for example".

If you have any grammar questions but are afraid to ask, most likely you can find it in Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips. You can also look for tips on Mignon's website and she even has an open invitation for people to email her with questions.

I checked this book out from the library but I am going to purchase a copy to have on hand. This book is indispensable!

This book is wonderful and a great resource for any writer. I'd give it more than five stars if I could. This is the best grammar book I've read thus far.
