Review

"An especially effective, brief grammar resource for general readers and communicators of all kinds." -- Library Journal

From the Inside Flap


Have you ever hesitated when choosing between I or me? Have you had trouble figuring out tricky pronouns like who or whom? What about those always-troublesome commas--do they go before or after the quotation marks? If you're anything like the rest of us, you struggle with these age-old grammatical issues. In this practical and easy-to-understand handbook, Dr. William B. Bradshaw identifies the ten most common errors in English grammar and helps you to recognize and correct these mistakes, enabling you to write and speak with greater clarity in your personal and professional life. "The Big Ten of Grammar" is the perfect guide for students, teachers, and professionals to use in brushing up on their grammar.

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.

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." .............

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 highly recommend this book for exactly the reason another reader criticized it - the numerous examples and explanations (even those that were repeated). As Bradshaw said in his introduction, those who don't need them can skip them. I have been a website editor, and Bradshaw's "Big Ten" list aligns well with my experiences in that position. In fact, I am sending the link to all my former clients. It is an easy read, and the author's intuitive approach will help people incorporate good grammar into their writing and speaking without having to look up rules in any grammar guide.

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