Recommends it for: English majors. Or people who hate grammar or think that it's too hard to learn.
The title is true: learning about grammar is broken down and sometimes illustrated with "the funnies" from a Sunday paper. I read it in college for a grammar/ English language class I was required to take. It's pretty helpful. I think I will read it again to refresh.
