    The words you use say a lot about you...but the way you put them together says even more. Your grammar makes an immediate - and lasting - impression on your boss, your co-workers, your teachers, and even your friends. We all use grammar, but many of us could use it better. Grammar Smart is a witty, irreverent, and entertaining approach to grammar to help you write and speak with clarity and confidence.

    Overall

    This is a great tape and an engaging presentation. The s*xu@l tension between the two presenters is palpable even for as dry a subject as this. I want to meet that sparky, grammar-smart girl!
    WARNING: There is a gap in the audio!! Chapter four ends abruptly in mid sentence (1:05:34, approx) then chapter five begins.
    Also, the last third of the recording sounds like it was recorded in a tin box.
    Usually, Audible ignores these problems so call them and bug them to fix the problem.

    Overall

    At a point very soon in the listening you will think, this is freaking tedious. Get to the point already. But he has very well researched examples from debates, press conferences, etc which are broken down to great effect.
    He does, however, refer to materials which 'you can download from the site where you purchased this audiobook' that aren't available here. Customer service tells me they will be here in the future but I'm already done with the book.
    This book deserves a second listen to absorb the content effectively so know going in that it's going to be work.
