I love this book!

Okay, as an editor, reviewer and wordsmith, I may be a tad biased, but still, I love this book. Anyone who has anything to do with writing should have this book on their reference shelf – but read it first. Don’t let this one gather dust.

The author takes 101 common words or phrases and discusses the correct way to use them. She does so with wit, examples, unimpeachable references and quotes from books, movies and television shows. For example: Kudos – this is a singular word meaning praise or glory and should not be used as a plural. There is no word kudo. Or you can find out the difference between bring and take or lie and lay and more. Like her website, Grammar Girl, the explanations are clear, easy to understand and witty.

If you have interest at all in word usage, definitely pick this one up. Kudos to you, Grammar Girl, for a great reference work.
