The Grammar Lady: How to Mind Your Grammar in Print and Personby Mary Newton Bruder
Drawn largely from Bruder's newspaper
In a world of rapid-fire e-mails and spell-check safety nets, is the need for good grammar a thing of the past? Mary Newton Bruder (a.k.a. "The Grammar Lady") proclaims a resounding, "No!" In this lively, lucid, fun guide, she tackles the real-life grammar questions and concerns that ordinary people have sent her away.
Drawn largely from Bruder's newspaper columns, hotline, and award-winning website, The Grammar Lady concentrates on common situations where grammar issues arise. Whether it's in the classroom, the boardroom, the job interview, or the cocktail party, the book takes on the grammatical gremlins that spring up everyday.
Each chapter is organized around a specific topic and addresses the questions posed by her readers, offering amusing anecdotes to illustrate the issue at hand as well as supplying easy-to-follow rules and helpful pointers. Peppered throughout the text are quizzes to test your understanding, definitions of worrisome words, and humorous sidebars.
So forget your traditional dusty rule books. With The Grammar Lady, you'll nimbly tread the path to better grammar and improve your language skills in the process.
