Book Description

Do you suffer from grammar-phobia because...



You're so used to IMing, you've forgotten how to write a normal sentence. :-)



You've started thinking in rap lyrics.



The last time you gave a report, your handouts got you laughed out of the room.



With Grammar Sucks, you can put your phobia to rest. Why else should you keep your grammar skills sharp? Why, knowledge of grammar can help you:



- Go after that big promotion with flair

- Win at board games

- Write a love letter that'll actually help you get the girl (or guy)

- Give an eloquent toast at the next Friars' Club roast



Following in the tradition of Joanne Kimes's signature "let's just close our eyes and get through this together" humor, along with Gary Robert Muschla's gentle grammar technique, Grammar Sucks is for everyone who hates the rules but wants to follow them anyway. It's the next best thing to learning them by osmosis!

4.0 out of 5 stars Grammar sucks, but not this book! September 26, 2007
Format:Paperback
"Grammar Sucks" is a entertaining read. I enjoyed the humor in the book and I learned a thing or two about grammar that I had not learned. I wish I had this book back when I was in high school. I have only two complaints about this book: (1) the section on verbs could have been more complete; (2) the book begs for problems with answers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grammar Can Be Entertaining February 24, 2011
By Qwester
Format:Paperback
That's Right.
I picked up a book about grammar. And it's not just because I have absolutely no social life. I need to learn a bit more about grammar because I, in all honesty, suck at grammar. Ya, ya. I know it's obvious. Cut me some slack and be reasonable. At least I'm trying, which is more than I can say for the vast majority of all you people.
Why should you at least check this book out from your local library? If you are an adult, you will appreciate that the authors took the time and made the effort to present a subject as appallingly boring and frustrating as grammar in such a way as to make it entertaining.
We all know that sex sells and people, no matter who you are, love to laugh. That is why this book will teach you more than your high school classes did so long ago.
You are going to learn grammar in a fun, interesting way.
The words and situations they use are designed to get your attention. And trust me, as long as you aren't cold blooded, they will. However, I would hesitate to give it to my high school student. And I wouldn't even think of offering it to my younger student. Not that teenagers aren't already exposed to humor that is much, much, much worse than what you'll find here. Adults have to stand by their principles.

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly enjoyable and practical read November 3, 2007
Format:Paperback
One of the things that will pretty much guarantee a book's rejection by a reviewer is that it is poorly written. Flawed writing comes in the form of typos and errors of grammar. Written with both wit and wisdom, "Grammar Sucks: What To Do To Make Your Writing Much More Better" is the collaborative work of Joanne Kimes (writer for a number of children's and comedy television shows, as well as coauthor of "Pregnancy Sucks" and "Pregnancy Sucks For Men") and Gary Robert Muschla (an expert and published author of several titles on writing, grammar, and reading instruction). This thoroughly 'reader friendly' compendium of instruction, advice, tips, and basic information, will prove to be invaluable for any writer who pretty much ignored all of those highschool English classes, and now wishes they'd paid attention to all that stuff about dangling modifiers, proper sentence structure, and run-on paragraphs. A truly enjoyable and practical read, "Grammar Sucks" is especially recommended for the novice writer and self-published author who keep wondering why their manuscripts are rejected and/or their books are refused a positive review -- or any review at all.
