I was a student of Dr. Maurice Scharton's and also acted as a teacher's assistant for a semester while he worked on this book. Dr. Scharton was brilliant and wry and had an uncanny way of making grammar fun - even for the otherwise disinterested frat boys and party girls who took his classes. This man made us look forward to 8:00 a.m. classes in the dead of winter. We studied in groups until the sun came up - because we wanted to. He is easily one of the best teachers I have ever had, and his death in 2002 shocked and saddened me. I enjoyed and learned from everything this man wrote. You will, too.

I used this as a gift to my college grandchild who is majoring in English. Since I have a huge part in raising this child, I thought it was sort of a play on words, in addition to being a useful book.
