I discovered this book when I was with my husband on a job site. The man is a writer for an investment newspaper and he had this book on his shelf. I was immedately mesmerized because it is such a comprehensive book in such a little package. It answers those nagging little questions (when to use "I" and "me," for example, and much more). So I got one for me - one for my mom (she's a retired English teacher and she loves this book - and one for my daughter (she's in high school). Love when you can have an easy to understand book!
