This is the second edition of this bestselling book. The Best Little Grammar Book Ever! was originally published in 2010. Since then it has sold thousands of copies and received outstanding reviews from its users, which include schools, colleges, students, parents, teachers, professionals, and authors.
The aim of this edition, as well as the first edition of the book, is to solve — in a friendly and easy-to-use way — those common grammar, punctuation, and word usage issues that stump us all. This second edition, with a new cover and subtitle, has been reformatted and updated with some new grammar standards and additional information, including an expanded section on comma use. The book also includes an introduction to basic grammar, lists of commonly misspelled and mispronounced words, a writing lesson, a final test, and a complete index. The Best Little Grammar Book Ever! will be followed by The Best Little Grammar Workbook Ever! and The Best Little Dictionary of Confused Words and Malapropisms — all coming out in 2016 and 2017.
Here are some of the new sections:
· The Singular They
· Flat Adverbs
· Verb Moods
· Starting a Sentence with a Conjunction
The chapter quizzes have been removed from this edition, but there is a comprehensive final test at the end of the book. The Best Little Grammar Workbook Ever! (late summer, 2016) will contain many exercises and quizzes and can be used with this book or by itself.
Here are what the readers say:
In this delightful book, Arlene Miller demystifies the basics of grammar to help you communicate with more clarity. And she does it without talking down to the reader, and without boring you to tears. This is not a compendium of grammar practice; it’s a streamlined overview with lots of tips and hints that will have you writing better right away. — Joel Friedlander
This Second Edition of Arlene Miller’s Best Little Grammar Book Ever is highly recommended for students, teachers, writers and anyone else who wants to produce written material that won’t make intelligent people laugh. There is a reason Miller is called “The Grammar Diva.” In simple, easy-to-understand terms, Miller explains grammar rules and how to negotiate the world of written language. Not only that, she has a sense of humor that holds the reader’s interest from one page to the next. She is a former teacher, a well-known speaker on the subject and a best-selling author on grammar. There is no better grammar guide to have in your bookcase or briefcase. Her other grammar books also are worthwhile for anyone who is serious about the written word. — Sheri Graves, author of Deep Doo-Doo
Very well written. Super organized and the author breaks down the different parts of a sentence and offers a very clear explanation. I will definitely be keeping this book tucked in my pocket on my writing days! Amazon Customer, June 26, 2016
