really liked it
Recommended to Rob by: NPR...does it get nerdier?
Recommended for: Grammar nerds

No point in reading this one unless you're a grammar nerd. I am, so I really enjoyed it. Yagoda does a nice job of describing descriptive vs. prescriptive approaches to grammar, shares his opinions without shoving them down the reader's throat, and makes some amusing observations along the way.
