Publisher's Summary

Now is your chance to shine. The boss has just called you in to get your opinion on an important issue. You are up for that promotion, after all, so what you say can really open doors for you. "Well," you begin confidently, "between you and I, this could go good, or this could go bad. If it was up to me, I'd make sure that..." Wait a minute. What's that look on her face? Why is she wrinkling her nose? I didn't even get a chance to make my brilliant suggestion! What just happened here? What happened here was bad grammar. What you say is important, but how you say it is just as important. Don't make the mistake of thinking that grammar is too complicated or boring for anyone but linguists and nerds. We all use grammar, but many of us could use it better. A Shortcut to Good Grammar is an entertaining and funny program that will help you avoid the mistakes that get noticed and make bad impressions; make grammar work for you instead of against you; discover that good grammar is simple and within your reach; forget about your eighth-grade English teacher; and hear real grammar the way it's really used.

Hard Going

These people are really are enough to cause road-rage. I was preparing for a CLEP test and thought that this might be helpful. Yick! once and a while they would say something in a useful, but I was so annoyed by the narration and forced ?banter? that I would have to back up to hear it, and that just to painful. I didn?t expect fun, but I did expect to not be annoyed.
