"Delightfully droll...Grammar Girl gives clear explanations with helpful examples." (Los Angeles Times)
Excellent for those grammar challenged. She makes grammar fun and easy to learn. I need to hear this book about every 3 months to get all the info she gives. If you got A's in English this is not the book for you.
As a non native English speaker I really enjoyed listening to the book. There were a lot of rules that I already knew but it is always good to refresh. Many things were new and interesting. After reading this book I think twice before I write something. Especially in this review😂
Relevant, useful, simple
No great moments. Overall great and memorable tips for understanding grammar.
I did not laugh or cry
If you need to get a quick grasp on grammar this book is fantastic. I am going to keep it in my queue for referencing.
This is a good review of grammer basic's as well as grammer issues that I didn't know were issues.
Well, I learned that I've been using my semi-colons incorrectly.
The performance was fine, the listener must realize that this book is to inform not simply entertain.
Well I learned that some grammer rules really are style issues, and that consistancy is usually best.
I liked this book; it expanded my knowledge is this area.
The information that I did not learn even while in college!
APA Manual, because listening to the book improves my writing skills.
A new point of view and views on writing.

The author does an excellent job of clarifying grammar errors in an entertaining way and with excellent tips to remember them by. However, this is something better done on paper that you can refer back to specific needs easily. The thought of listening to this every three months or so as some reviewers have suggested is not pleasurable to me.
Horrible mistake to purchase this book. Who wants to listen to grammer tips for several hours. No way to refrence back as needed.
Author should leave her politics out of her writing. This was supposed to be a grammer book.
The rules are useful and author does a good job of presenting the topics in an interesting way.
educational, fun, useful.
Her sense of humour seeping through her performance.
This is a grammar book, it is not aimed at 'moving' the reader, but to educate; which it does.
This is a worthwhile book to get to know. It certainly will improve your language skills.
Easy to follow and great explanations. Would skip the web convention part but everything else is well done.
