Marcy gets to the point of what is necessary and useful. The small amount of time required to read this book will help you communicate, whatever platform you choose.
For me I think that what is most helpful is that Ms. Kennedy explains why some of these seemingly simple things are so confusing again and again. She understands and explains why writers get confused, why even she used to get confused in school. For me, once I understood, why it was that I didn't understand and why was that I repeatedly got confused, I found that I no longer got confused. But this book sits at my right hand right now. If it is not on my writing desk I won't start writing intelligence back where it belongs, at my right hand.
everything Ms. Marcy Kennedy writes in this series is very useful. But you should know before you buy what you're creative writing issues or dilemmas are. I would've loved to of had her as a fiction writing teacher or even or even a high school English teacher. My middle school English teacher made grammar so terrifying! Because of my early terrors regarding grammar, I am amazed to this day that I ever became a creative writer. Thank you Ms. Marcy Kennedy.
This book is a great reference for any writer at any level of experience. The authors explain when and why it's acceptable to break the rules, as well as how to bend them correctly. The best part? You also get a free set of "Take It to the Page" checklists, which are designed to help you spot all those little punctuation and grammar goofs and make sure that every word serves its intended purpose.

One thing I've noticed about formatting is that many of the underlined, bolder, or italicized examples didn't appear correctly in my kindle for iPad app. I do not have an actual kindle to see if it was an app problem or something with the file itself. However, it was not distracting enough to make the examples unclear to me.
The price is a no-brainer.
I hate to read non-fiction and have trouble forcing myself to finish craft books, but not this one (nor the others in the series). They are quick, easy reads. As billed, ideal for busy writers!!
