Product description

Review

“Lighthearted and funny . . . It’s like Strunk and White combined with S. J. Perelman—none of whom would have had the slightest objection.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Possibly the most popular book on grammar ever published.” —Writers.com

“Extraordinary . . . I’m keeping this book by my keyboard.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Invigorating and entertaining . . . As vital as a dictionary for those who wish to be taken seriously in speech, in print, or on Facebook.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A nifty guidebook to modern grammar that affectionately elbows the reader on every page.” —San Francisco Chronicle

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Close your eyes and go for it.
By Manoj chandila on 19 August 2020
Patricia! if you're reading this please know that I love your book and the cover even more, people can judge this book by its cover :), because it justifies every word inscribed on it. Thank you for your 'plain English', simplicity has been and always will be 'ATTRACTIVE'. Speaking is as charming as reading or writing in my opinion and it should be made so if not. You've just helped us in that direction. Heartfelt thank you :).

Book came quickly but there is a large permanent indent on the cover. Almost looks perforated....very disappointed. It was going to be a gift but I can't give it in this condition.
