Editorial Reviews

About the Author

June Casagrande writes a popular and very humorous "A Word, Please" grammar column for five Los Angeles Times Community News papers.

Shelly Frasier has recorded over fifty audiobooks. She can be heard narrating such classics as Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From AudioFile

Lay, lie, lain? Drink, drank, drunken? The slightest perceived misuse of English, or American, can rouse the ire of the "grammar snobs," who delight in savaging those who dare sully the language. Through the delightful voice of Shelly Frasier, author Casagrande gives listeners a set of arrows with which to pierce the grammar snobs' inflated sense of self-importance, using liberal doses of humor. Thanks to Frasier's sharp comic timing, you'll get the full effect of the author's self-effacing expos&EACUTE; of grammatical crime--and be relieved to know most of the mistakes you've been accused of making are usually misdemeanors. Becoming aware of the vast gray zone of usage makes the English language a friendlier place.

By PilotX on August 11, 2016
I got this book as a recommendation from my writing and rhetoric professor. This book is hilarious. There are those out there that have pet peeves of others speaking improperly. They are annoyed and distracted with dangling modifiers like they are dangling boogers, it's just hard to ignore them. Whoever or whomever is one of those them or they, I am equally peeved by your peeve. I often hear corrections made that are indeed themselves false. In reality who cares (whomever cares)... This book is fun because you can learn the real usage then if you're ever corrected you can spend the next extended waste of time arguing, but be careful arguing with a stupid person, they will bring you down to their level and beat you with experience. (grammatical errors inserted purposefully)

In an ironic twist of my dog ate my homework, this book did not come as pictured it really was my pup trying to learn with me.
