Publisher's Summary

Mignon Fogarty, a.k.a. Grammar Girl, is determined to wipe out bad grammar - but she's also determined to make the process as painless as possible. One year ago, she created a weekly podcast to tackle some of the most common mistakes people make while communicating. More than seven million episodes have now been downloaded, and Mignon has dispensed grammar tips on Oprah and appeared on the pages of the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and USA Today. With the trademark wit, warmth, and approachability that the podcasts are known for, Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing covers the grammar rules and word choice guidelines that can confound even the best writers. From "between vs. among" and "although vs. while" to comma splices and misplaced modifiers, Mignon offers memory tricks and clear explanations that will help listeners recall and apply those troublesome grammar rules. Chock full of tips on style, business writing, and effective e-mailing, Grammar Girl's latest audiobook should be heard by every communicator.

What would have made Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing better?

Horrible mistake to purchase this book. Who wants to listen to grammer tips for several hours. No way to refrence back as needed.

What was most disappointing about Mignon Fogarty’s story?

Author should leave her politics out of her writing. This was supposed to be a grammer book.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The rules are useful and author does a good job of presenting the topics in an interesting way.
