"Delightfully droll....Grammar Girl gives clear explanations with helpful examples." (Los Angeles Times)
"At the root of all her success, of course, is a true love of language and grammar." (John Faherty, The Arizona Republic)
Just an Excentric Dirt Lawyer
This book is assembled from the best of the Grammar Girl podcasts. She is funny and the book is great for high school students to doctors and professors.
A fun way to either learn from the beginning, or to be reminded.
This is a bit of a rehash of her wonderful podcast, but Grammar Girl is always a pleasure to listen to, and I love being reminded about the rules. (I think I got those commas in the right places.) I highly recommend this book even if you've listened to everyone of her podcasts. She's engaging and a great listen. I use it at school with my kids.
A brief but informative audio book; which the author continues in her own website.
The audio book is a good listen for beginners or those that just get baffled over proper word usage.
Its a book to be brought not one to be listened to. I found it difficult to know what she was talking about especially when she spoke about words that sound the same...I need to see the words myself. Its much better to buy a book like this so that you could highlight points to remember. This is not a good audio book. I wish I could get my money back for this one. Its was a wasted purchase.
This audio book was disappointing. Many of the "quick and dirty tips" are very hard to "get" while listening (in other words, without seeing them), and the author moves on so quickly that they are very difficult to absorb. It may be much better to read this one.
