Re: Grammar, this is the book to get. Well Written and to the point, not a waste of verbiage like many.

This is an excellent quickie course on the most common (and, to the grammar geek, most annoying) grammatical mistakes. Although a little repetitive to hammer the point across, it explains the errors and how to fix them in clear, nontechnical language. I would have liked the use of a few basic grammatical terms (such as "direct object"), but that's a personal quirk. And although I'm an obsessive editor and nitpicker myself, I did discover that I (together with 99% of English speakers) seem to have been making one minor error all my life. Oh well!

The content is decent and the explanations are easy to follow. Having examples to illustrate a grammar rule is good, but the author goes overboard. There is no need to repeat the same explanation over and over; the approach may work in a classroom setting, but the nearly identical paragraphs repeated multiple times diminish the value that I get from reading the book. The faster-pace appendix suits me better.

I have heard the author interviewed on the radio and really enjoyed it. This book is great for a refresher course on grammar and for quick help when I am not certain of useage. If you need a book to polish up your grammar this is it.

If you've forgotten what Sister Katherine taught you (often with the helpful use of a ruler on the back of your knuckles when you made a mistake) back in grade school, this book can painlessly help you remember. Though it gets a little repetitive at times in the attempt to re-install the information in your brain, it has all the basic tools to jog your memory and help you with your own writing.

I really love "The Big Ten of Grammar"! It summed up all the common sticking points and gave their solutions in clear, concise, and informative terms. I wish I had had this book in High School English class. My writing is already improving and Mr. Bradshaw answered some questions that have plagued me for a long time (farther vs. further for example). A must have for writers who want to be better (especially if they don't have an editor).

Poor English drives me crazy! My kids objected to being corrected but thanked us eventually when they grew up. I kept quoting Shakespeare to them that "Your tongue determines your station in life." .............
