Secondly, it is written by ... THE GRAMMAR GIRL! Yes, I am aware I wrote that loudly (Sorry)
However, can one whisper when speaking about the goddess of linguistics? Perhaps some, or many can ... but NOT ME! (Sorry again)
You may be wondering, does he like grammar or love the grammar girl?
No need exhausting weary synapses firing those inquisitive neurons; just buy the book! You will be a better writer, if you write, and you will speak better, especially if you speak formally. If you do neither, you will still benefit. For example, you will know when to use "affect" or "effect", "me" or "myself" and that you never, absolutely and unequivocally never, write, or say, "anyways".
ALSO! (dagnabbit ... sorry), the Grammar Girl has a weekly podcast, that discusses similar topics, and keeps current with the ever-evolving world of language and grammar. And ... she does it with such a pleasant voice. (That would be euphemistic, lest my bias be obvious.) So, fire up your mobile device, select podcast, and subscribe to the Grammar Girl.
Should you decide to purchase this book, (I have all her books.) navigate to quickanddirtytips.com/offers and link to Amazon from that page. It helps support her site. If this sounds like an advertisement, let me assure you I have no affiliation with Amazon or the Grammar Girl. I'm just a subservient branch living amid the regal pines of Virginia held captive by my fascination for grammar and her queen.
I am so satisfied with her teaching style! I love the way she uses her imaginary friends, Aardvark & Squiggly, to illustrate her point. She gives ways to remember the rules of grammar, whenever she can. Her style is so un-starched.
I am a retired engineer, who now has the time to do some serious writing, which I enjoy. I needed to find a way to learn correct grammar to improve my writing. "Quick & Dirty Tips For Better Writing", was the answer for me. I find this book & Mignon Fogarty, an excellent teacher of English Grammar. I'm so happy with my choice!
I bought the Kindle version. It is very easy to find my way around the book by going to the Table Of Contents & clicking on the subject I'm looking for. It is fast & so easy to get to what I need. I also bought her book on "Punctuation"--excellent!
It makes a great refresher to grammar all of us should know. If you are coming to English from another language, the mnemonics that the book provides will help you with the conventions and exceptions. This is a recommended purchase.
K. Kris Loomis is the author of How to Sneak More Yoga Into Your Life and several short fiction collections.
