Description

From the bestselling author of Woe Is I: A guide to grammar fundamentals that's sympathetic to the struggling writer and often just plain funny" (The Seattle Times).

Whether you need to improve your skills for work or school, or aspire to the Great American Novel, a grounding in grammar, spelling, and punctuation is essential -- not just to make you look like a professional but to communicate effectively in emails, essays, or anything you need to write.

This painless, practical book is filled with short, snappy chapters, crystal-clear examples, and a "playful sense of humor" (The New York Times Book Review) -- covering everything from "Pronoun Pileups" and "Verbs That Zing" to "What to Do When You're Stuck." With these simple, straightforward tips, you can learn how to sort your thoughts and make sentences that make sense.

"Students writing papers, employees preparing reports, and those who just want to be understood in print may benefit from this fun-to-use answer to Strunk and White. O'Connor uses humor as she takes apart sentences and their parts and shows how each element is used effectively." -- Booklist
