I have a few grammar-type books ..which ostensibly help one distinguish between "affect" and "effect"....and similar difficult grammatical issues. But ( )

I learned several tips for improving my grammar. After being an author for three years, I'm still brushing up on all things grammatical. Sometimes it makes my head spin. Grammar Girl made refreshing my brain fun. The only drawback was that I wish there was less ad lib. But despite the ad lib, reading her how-to book like a novel allowed me to study her style and observe how she incorporates what she teaches. ( )

Very good book to have for future refference! ( )

If you write for business or pleasure this is an excellent resource. It's not a style guide (there are already gazillions of those) but it does tackle 24 of the most common grammar 'issues' by offering easy tips and memory tricks to help you remember grammar rules. The author also produces a weekly podcast on the topic and offers an email mailing list with even more tips for better writing. ( )

First, I have to say that I love Mignon Fogarty, and I think she's a genius for marketing a "how-to-improve-your-writing" book with a title that includes the words "quick and dirty." People are looking for a quick fix (hence the "quick"), and any time you can convince people that they're getting away with something (the "dirty"), you are likely to attract readers. Forgarty focuses on grammar issues, but in the context of writing. Issues are addressed and explained one at a time, allowing the audience to select more pertinent and helpful chapters.

This is the one book I recommend to my high school seniors at the end of their illustrious career. I tell them everyone needs to know how to write well, and I then promote the book. They're usually sold when they hear "quick and dirty." I loaned my copy of the book to friends who are trying to get through a writing class or requirement. I do keep a copy in my classroom, but for students, I'm more likely to recommend the student edition of the text. This makes a great resource for budding and struggling writers. ( )

(Introduction) We're all good at something. My husband can calculate sales tax in his head, and surprisingly it turns out I'm pretty good at teaching people about language. The revelation came to me slowly at first, and then in a tidal wave.
(Chapter 1) Even though my show is called "Grammar Girl," the secret is that it's not usually grammar that confounds people--it's usage.
