Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Brief Wadsworth Handbook (Spiral-bound)
I originally purchased this reference book because it was one of the required texts for a writing class I was taking. It was helpful for the class, but the true magnificence of this book is the money-making potential it possesses. Simply memorize every obscure grammar rule the book has to offer and bring them into your conversations whenever possible. When someone disagrees with you over one of the counterintuitive rules you have cleverly inserted in the conversation (and they will), perpetuate the argument until your adversary is willing to bet money that they are correct and you are incorrect. Take their bet immediately and do so with a straight face. It is at this point that you will reveal the Wadsworth Handbook, consult the appropriate page, and pocket your winnings. It really is that simple. Good luck.
