Publisher's Summary

Here's some good news for everyone who's ever been bullied into believing they can't speak their own language: The grammar snobs are bluffing. Half the "rules" they use to humiliate others are really just judgment calls and the rest they don't even understand themselves. Grammar Snobs Are Great Big Meanies is a laugh-out-loud funny collection of anecdotes and essays on grammar and punctuation, as well as hilarious critiques of the self-appointed language experts. In this collection of hilarious anecdotes and essays, June Casagrande delivers practical language lessons not found anywhere else, demystifying the subject and taking it back from the snobs.

One of the Best

I've been a member a long time and have listened to a lot of audio books. This one had become one of my favorites. It's both entertaining and educational. I highly recommend this to someone interested in learning all the strange ins and outs of the English language. I wouldn't recommend this for ESL unless you are near native level.
Enjoy!
