Overview

Do you suffer from grammar-phobia because….

You’re so used to IMing, you’ve forgotten how to write a normal sentence. :-) You’ve started thinking in rap lyrics. The last time you gave a report, your handouts got you laughed out of the room.

With Grammar Sucks, you can put your phobia to rest. Why else should you keep your grammar skills sharp? Why, knowledge of grammar can help you:

  • Go after that big promotion with flair
  • Win at board games
  • Write a love letter that’ll actually help you get the girl (or guy)
  • Give an eloquent toast at the next Friars’ Club roast

Following in the tradition of Joanne Kimes’s signature “let’s just close our eyes and get through this together” humor, along with Gary Robert Muschla’s gentle grammar technique, Grammar Sucks is for everyone who hates the rules but wants to follow them anyway. It’s the next best thing to learning them by osmosis!

Joanne Kimes is the coauthor of the bestsellers Pregnancy Sucks and Pregnancy Sucks for Men. She has written for a number of children’s and comedy television shows and lives with her husband and daughter in Studio City, California.

Gary Robert Muschla is a former teacher and is the author of several books on writing, grammar, and teaching reading. He lives in New Jersey with his wife and daughter.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In this age of instant messaging and informal emails, grammar seems to be the first casualty. Talk of parts of speech, prepositional phrases, subject-verb agreement, split infinitives, and proper punctuation makes people nervous; even adroit CEOs quake when they hear the words "dangling modifier." Now Joanne Kimes, the author of Pregnancy Sucks for Men, is back with a pleasantly lighthearted tutorial on grammatical hot topics too embarrassing to ignore. Friendly English, finally.
