    1. By trade I am a historian and so most of my reviews will either cover history, anthropology, my minor or theology my passion Recently, Kindle ran this book as one of the Kindle Daily Deals and I picked it up for a great price I did not come to this book with high expectations Let s face it, grammar books are not as exciting to most people as they might be to an English major This book left me feeling pleasantly surprised Its goal is to give the reader a refresher course on the conventions of Eng [...]


    2. Anne Stilman makes learning the essentials of good writing fun She takes complex and often tedious issues and makes them come alive.Could not recommend it highly.


    3. learned a lot, especially about my own mistakes in grammar prior to reading this, by the way _ e book itself at least my copy is nice to read, the letters are clear, and the size and weight fit with my hands an essential writing reference, the book will forever go to my currently reading shelf.


    4. By far the most instructive and entertaining book on grammar I ve ever read A perfect addition to any aspiring editor or grammar nut s bookshelf.


    5. This is a great reference book for youth to have handy while writing I did not read this book all the way through, but skimmed it and used it myself during writing Definitely a keeper




    6. A thorough, readable resource I enjoyed the fact that there are examples throughout the book where one can test one s knowledge.



    7. I read this book as an assignment for a copyediting class While the general advice was well written and easily understandable, there were a few typos that caused some confusion There is a page where Stilman s examples are flipped, and some of her answers to her interior quizzes are mislabeled.Were this a different book, these minor errors would not cause me to drop the star rating so far, but this is a book about grammar and mechanics and proofreading This is a book that is flat out not allowed [...]


    8. As a working copy editor, I found this book tremendously helpful and I say that really wanting to dislike the book for the sole reason that there were a lot of rules to remember But by the end of the book, they sunk in, and it became a breeze to finish.Some parts I felt as if I read them before verbatim, many chapters before But even the author writes, have a sound rationale for putting down anything that has been explained before She does just this by repeating definitions given in previous cha [...]


    9. I read this on my Kindle, and while the subject matter seemed accurate, the presentation left a lot to be desired Some of the issues are not the fault of the person who formatted it charts do not render well, and the Kindle tends to try to correct some errors that were deliberately placed to demonstrate a point For example, demonstrating smart and simple quotes, everything displayed as smart quotes But other issues should have been corrected There were misplaced spaces throughout the text, somet [...]


    10. Pretty good stuff What, you expected me to render my verdict in a grammatically complex sentence Not quite as diverting as Eats, Shoots and Leaves or Woe Is Me, which are both wittier, and thus for me compelling Yet, this covers a deep range of grammar concepts with lively writing and clear examples, and supplies excellent refresher material for aging editors like me The section on tenses, which is near the end, gets too deep for this grammar enthusiast My goodness, who knew there was a past pl [...]


    11. In her guide to the basics of the English language, Stilman aims at aspiring writers in search of clear, simple explanations of often confounding rules and straightens us out about what doesn t matter The book also is a good brush up for those who think they know the rules but lack the vocabulary to explain it Stilman does a good job of brightening up what can be a dull subject, although some tedium is inevitable it s best to take this one in small bites or to read only those sections in which y [...]


    12. The most in depth analysis of grammar I ve ever read An indispensable resource for writers, this book takes each grammar topic and provides a thorough description But what really sets it apart are they fabulous examples that show you many different ways to use the grammar topic All punctuation, sentence structures, and formatting issues are examined in detail Great reference for any writer s shelf.


    13. A lot of great tips for grammar and punctuation and very easy to understand If you re a writer, editor, or a student, this belongs on your reference shelf No, it doesn t cover every grammar or punctuation issue, but it does contain enough to get you started And it s interesting enough to read for fun if your idea of fun is reading reference works.


    14. just finished reading this, very through and very helpful, already noticing a slight change into a my writing style although it is slightly complicated if your new to grammar but other than that, its a great book


    15. Very useful tips on writing I thought some of the examples were too long and some chapters were complicated I never thought there are this many rules in English grammar even to commas But overall I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to improve their writing skills.









    16. This a great and highly detailed read A must for anyone who wants to know basically everything there is to know about grammar and punctuation.
