Product description

Grammar has finally let its hair down! Unlike uptight grammar books that overwhelm us with every single grammar rule, this is like a bikini: it's fun, flirty, and covers only the most important bits. Its lessons, which are 100 per cent free of complicated grammar jargon, have been carefully selected to include today's most common errors - the ones that confuse our readers or make them wonder if we are, in fact, smarter than a fifth grader. What is the proper use of an apostrophe? When should an ellipsis be used instead of an em dash? This book shows grammar as it's never been seen before.
