I happened to be in Barnes & Noble and this book caught my eye. I flipped through this book because I was not born a writer and what guy does not like quick and dirty tips about the English language? I honestly hated English and grammar in school; however, this book makes learning the English language easier. I especially enjoy the pictures because they help me to remember various grammar rules such as when to use affect or effect. I also crack up in the supermarket now because of the words “10 items or less.” This book will remain on my shelf for years because it has helped me to communicate more effectively. If one likes to write or blog, this book is direct and to the point regarding communicating through written words.
