“To be sure, this is not a book for readers who might have an aversion to foul language or references to drugs and sex. Its 96 pages are replete with hilarious references, but don’t let that discourage you―Chris Baker and Jacob Hansen have ensured that naughty words serve the noble purpose of promoting good grammar.” ―The Weekly Standard

I was pleasantly surprised to find that I already knew a lot of the rules in this book. But even when I knew the rule, I still read what they had to say about it, because this book is hilarious! I got to the part where they congratulate you for finishing the book, and continued reading the back end stuff because everything they wrote was so funny. I believe this book had more sex and drugs than the movie Blow. It’s not for sensitive people at all. It’s fairly sexist, racist, and probably other -ists, too. While inappropriate (what do you expect from a ” helpful parody” style guide with the word f*cking in the title?), the examples certainly stay in your mind.
If you’re like me – a lout when it comes to grammar and style – you owe it to yourself to pick up this book and give it a gander. I imagine I’ll read through it a couple more times to a) laugh and, b) try to drill the lessons into my brain.
