I love a good grammar book. I'm somewhat a freak of nature in that regard. But I just can't help it. There's something passionate and inspiring about comma placement discussions. So, naturally, when I saw that this book was one of my selections for the Quality Paperback Book club, I had to actually buy it. I mean, with a title like this, how could you lose? I think punctuation's sexy, so it's about time we started converting the rest of the world.

Content-wise, this is full of excellent discussions and exercises on English usage, which I think would be absolutely ideal for an advanced person learning English as a second or later language. But it's also got dumb sex puns, as evidenced by its title, which someone learning English probably wouldn't get. I feel like they had the title and just had to do something with it.

An average book. Rozakis should have taken more trouble to
present a better account because of competition in this area.
How one can write this in a grammar book: The first 'word' in a
sentence should be in capital letters. Rozakis does!
A number of interesting books with novel approaches are
available in the market. Hence, this doesn't seem to be a
book one would recommend. If you are just beginning to read
grammar books, this is a good initiation, though.

Excellent book to help make one grammar proficient. Strunk & White is quite stiff when compared with this funny approach to good grammar. The author uses modern day lingo and situations to help you comprehend the irritating nuances of the English language.

I was all excited about picking up a grammar book. I mean, hey, who doesn't like grammar? I was disappointed to find this book very basic. It might have been well written, but I can't really say--I mostly skimmed it.

Light-hearted look at punctuation, grammmar and plain writing. Discussess all those hard things like case, tense, etc. It even has little quizzes.

The title of THIS book appealed to both the pundit and the word-nerd in me. Another rec from Andree. :)

Funny! Great examples and not as stuffy as Eats, Shoots and Leaves
