I have been looking for a clear and comprehensive guide on grammar for many – I found it. Mignon Fogarty navigates grammar rules and common practices in an engaging and fun way. Her humor is enjoyable and within the context of what she is communicating. I bought the e-book version and then soft copy to keep in my office. These "quick and dirty tips for better writing" have helped me be a better communicator, both professionally and personally. I am delighted.
I am by no stretch of the imagination a grammarian nor do I have the intention of becoming one, but I do want my writing to be clear and concise. This wonderful book won't help me write a treatise about grammar; it does help sound just a little bit smarter than I am.
A good teacher makes learning easy, and this is exactly what Mignon Fogarty does in her grammar books. I'm an old grammar junkie, but even old dogs can learn new tricks--and learn I did, painlessly, in this easy-to-read little gem of a book.
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.
