    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

    First, I would strongly recommend that Audible get more of these grammar books...there are just too few to choose from. That said, this is unfortunately one of the best choices here.

    The good: The rules are great. You will learn about a ton of mistakes that you make on a daily basis and will come away with some great new fixes. Very helpful for test prep, as I prepare for my GMATs.

    The bad: The presenters are probably the two most annoying people ever. Some moron at the Princeton Review probably thought these people and this kind of presentation would stick. If you hate Monty Python (like I do) you will hate the presenters and the humor on this listen. It only makes it harder to listen to. Instead of using simple examples to illustrate their point, they use really annoying examples with stupid, made up words sometimes to make a point. The "news reports" in between are abominable and hard to follow. Hopefully they fired the two geeks doing the dialog as well as the schmucks who wrote the dialog and replaced them with easier to follow examples and more professional people.

    I hope that Audible adds more grammar books and considers using similar products from companies like Kaplan or Verbal Advantage who tend to do things much more seriously and professionally. Until then, this is about the best we got...or have :).
