*hides face* Yes.....I'm brushing up on my grammar *peeks through fingers*

I like this one, the author compares grammar to body piercing and the fact that she mentions Jackie Collins makes me glad I picked this one instead of "English Grammar for Dummies"

I love grammar books. This one is funny and disarming and faces what most people feel about grammar head-on (while still helping them correct it).

Even though I love learning about grammar and have a genuine interest in it, a lot of grammar books are (obviously) not very fun to read. This book is actually a joy to read. It's funny, straight forward, and simple.

Most other grammar books have a really serious tone to them, but this one was much more approachable and fun. I liked it a lot!

I've had this book lying around and I've been meaning to read it while reading other books, (since the topics would be different) but I haven't gotten into it. I thought it would be a little more interesting since the author injects humor into the text, but it just hasn't struck me yet. I'll get to it at some point though.

I was surprised that I rather enjoyed reading this book. It is not easy to make grammar, a rather dry subject, humerous, but Ms. Kimes managed it and managed it well. Yes, some of the humor was a little hokey, but it did make it more fun to read.

Recommends it for: english/language arts teachers
As a literacy teacher who struggles with the obtuse jargon found in grammar textbooks, I highly recommend this user-friendly guide. It's humorous taboot.

I wanted this one around for reference but it's just barely readable with the weird jokes and the "we hate English but here's the book anyway" perspective.

I used to write for TV but when I became pregnant, I didn't want to work the long hours anymore. Besides, once I realized that pregnancy sucks, it gave me the perfect fodder for my first book entitled, "Pregnancy Sucks: What to do When Your Miracle Makes you Miserable". That led to ten other books in the Sucks series, plus my new book, "The Stay-at-Home Martyr".
