Review by: Kathleen OHagan on June 15, 2013 :
This book contains concise reminders of the common grammar and vocabulary usage English speakers should have learned by the end of high school, but probably didn't. And if that wasn't enough, the lessons are delivered with an enjoyable mixture of humor and sarcasm that keep you reading and drive the lesson home. The next time you get into an argument with a colleague or your child over the use of the terms affect vs. effect or how to use an apostrophe, show them this book. You'll win the argument.
