Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Bad grammar can be a stumbling block for individuals trying to advance their careers. Booher, the CEO of communications training firm Booher Consultants, has collected 101 common mistakes that appear in business presentations, emails, and documents. Starting with some of the tricky irregular verb forms (lie v. lay) she moves on to modifiers, pronouns, and various comparatives (fewer and less), as well as punctuation and stylistic concerns. Each section is short, usually two to three pages, and includes an explanation along with examples and a final tip to help readers remember the rule. There are some fun facts, like the role of manual typesetting in creating the rules for which punctuation marks precede quotation marks; evidently, smaller punctuation marks fell out of the case unless they were held in place by the quotation marks. This book seems to be most useful as a desk reference for individuals, but it will also be of interest to public libraries with collections that support career development.
