Booher's Rules of Business Grammar is a handy reference book for grammar rules in the workplace. The larger style guides like Covey's and Gregg's, although great guides, are large and cumbersome. Booher's is small enough to keep right by your computer for ease in picking up and reviewing quickly. Because it addresses the most common errors I see in business documents, most of what I need is at hand. I don't have to search indexes to find what I need, and struggle back and forth until I find the exact section. I suggest this book as a handy, dandy business tool.

Format: Paperback
Don't get me wrong. There are many good books on grammar. I know; I own many of them. However, a problem with many of them is that they delve too deeply into what I consider trivia and not the core of written communications. That is where this book stands out. Further, it's a fun read. Unlike most grammar books, you can actually start on page one and read through it and enjoy every page. And the author exhibits a natural sense of humor; not one for belly laughs, but one for seeing the humor in life and in the written word. The book is a delight.

I have authored eight books and am always sensitive on my writing, and at first I was hesitant to read yet another book on the topic, but I'm glad that I did. This is a book for anyone who cares about their written communication, whether in business or writing letters to family. To me, a treat of the book is that it also helps me frame my thoughts into words. And that may be the biggest benefit of all. I think everyone needs a copy by their bed, one in their office, and two or three scattered around their homes for ready reference.... :) Yes, it's that good.

I've found this book to be a very helpful resource as I write articles for the monthly newsletter at the nonprofit agency where I work.. I was surprised to find mistakes that I often make without realizing it. Booher's book highlights these common mistakes in a style that is fun to read, and easy to remember. I'm looking forward to reading more!

This is a first-rate reference book not only for "business grammar"-but for anyone who ever writes. It contains all the rules we were taught-but may have forgotten.

Booher suggests you test your grammar IQ online at [...] BEFORE you read word one in her book.

In my case, you can always tell how meaningful a book is by the number of little sticky notes marking pages. A sampling of my tabs starts at the dreaded lay/lie, and include who/whom, good/well, me/myself, and he/him and me/my. I now know the rules (again).

As a copyeditor, one of the things I try to show writers is the overuse of throwaway words like: There is (many reasons for this decision). It could be stronger to say: Reasons for the decision are many. The other part is the common misuse of there's (there is) followed by a plural noun-requiring are, not is-like in example above (many/is).

By the way, words like there is/are are called "expletives," - a word that has nothing grammatically to do with the rest of the sentence (fake subject in place of real subject's slot). See, now you learned something new-so stop using expletives.

This and many grammar rules we learned in middle and high school are described, and incorrect and correct usages are shown and explained. It is SO user-friendly.

Each short one-subject chapter ends with a memory tip that sums up the point.

I believe for most writers it's not really necessary to know if you are using an "irregular verb" (like to go, to do, to come, to see). It is important that you understand the rules and use grammar correctly.

If you agree that we are dumbing down America as related to how we speak and write, raise your hand.

There are plenty of books out there on grammar. What sets Booher's Rules of Business Grammar apart from the great majority is that it's readable versus a classroom drilldown. Oh, there are the dos and don'ts ... you want them. Through the author's eye and voice, you pick up on her humor and love of the written word, sentence, paragraph--the works. And that's what makes it different. She knows her stuff inside and out ... as do most 4th grade school teachers. Booher's added gift is that she presents her sage advice with a little fun along with the wisdom. What I like about Dianna Booher is she is the author herself of dozens of books--not just the "how to" variety of getting words correct. She's in the trenches.

All of us are communicators. Our words. Your words. Today, it is the written word--your connectors, your voice, your livelihood. Who doesn't text quick (and sometimes lengthy) written messages; think of the posts--those blogs, Tweets, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, website copy and updates, emails and every other item that flows from your head through your fingers via some electronic connection. What about articles, white papers, descriptions or anything else that you are required to pump out routinely?

It's all about communicating. And using grammar that matches who you want the world to see you as: someone who can walk, talk, write ... and chew gum at the same time! Highly recommended.
