Good Grammar makes good grammar., 20 Jun 2008
I highly recommend this book. It covers all the grammar and punctuation rules you'll need, broken down into simple, logical steps. The content seems comprehensive and I'm sure it would be a useful and interesting read for those of any writing ability. You can work through from cover to cover if you wish, making use of the little exams at the end of each chapter to test your knowledge, or you can simply use it as a reference to fill in the gaps. The benefits of this book far outweigh any worries you should have about admitting your grammar weaknesses, and improving upon them. I did get a little stick on lunch breaks at work for reading this, but that was all worth it now I'm using verbs, adjectives and semi-colons like a pro!
I'm struggling to think of any shortcomings this book has. The only downside I can see is that the formatting inside may be a little too cute and 'kiddish' for some adults, although obviously a benefit if you're actually a child.
