Avoid Grammatical Minefields with This Entertaining Guide

Confused about when to use "its" or "it's" or the correct spelling of "principal" and "principle"? My Grammar and I . . . Or Should That Be Me? is a refresher course for anyone who has ever been stumped by spelling confusion, dangling modifiers, split infinitives, or for those who have no idea what these things even are.

Clever, informative, and fun, this delightful little handbook offers practical and humorous guidance on how to avoid falling into language pitfalls.

  • Sentence Structure: Let's ponder the subject or object: Is it "I" or is it "me"?
  • Parts of Speech: Is it "whose" or "who's"? "Which" or "that"?
  • Punctuation: So where does that comma go, anyway?
  • Spelling and Confusables: There are times when the spelling "rules" confuse.
  • Elements of Style: You'll find there's lots more to know about grammar.
  • . . . and for the grammar know-it-all, there are entertaining "Smart Aleck" tidbits throughout.
