Modern English Misusage: The Rules of Grammarby Barney Oliver, Herbert Stansbury
Far more than a list of do's and don'ts. this unique and highly readable book is an intriguing guide to proper use of the English language. The famous science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke said 'This book radiates common sense- a commodity, alas, which becomes less and less common everyday.'It is an essential handbook for communicating effectively and directly.
Author Biography: The English language is beautiful...let's do it justice!' This life-long belief impelled Barney Oliver, a child-genius, born in Soquel, California, to write this book. Barney was an engineer and a scientist by training, with degrees from Stanford University and CalTech. He was head of research for Hewlett-Packard, and his achievements were legend, as was his contribution to SETI Institute. Barney died in 1995. This book is one of his great legacies.
