I am a big fan of Fine and Josephson's Nitty-Gritty Grammar. Many times I have pulled out my well-worn copy of Nitty-Gritty Grammar, paged through the index for the topic of my question, and found the answer. Well, now thanks to their newest installment into the world of grammar, More Nitty-Gritty Grammar, no grammar question will go unanswered! The newest book is longer and provides a more in-depth index (helpful for the "quick look-up") but still retains the light-hearted, fun attitude about grammar. I highly recommend this book--it is an ideal reference tool for anyone from students to office workers.
