"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.

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.

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.
