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.

Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips

Excellent for those grammar challenged. She makes grammar fun and easy to learn. I need to hear this book about every 3 months to get all the info she gives. If you got A's in English this is not the book for you.

Highly recommended

As a non native English speaker I really enjoyed listening to the book. There were a lot of rules that I already knew but it is always good to refresh. Many things were new and interesting. After reading this book I think twice before I write something. Especially in this review😂

interesting story

If you could sum up Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing in three words, what would they be?

educational, fun, useful.

What about Mignon Fogarty’s performance did you like?

Her sense of humour seeping through her performance.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

This is a grammar book, it is not aimed at 'moving' the reader, but to educate; which it does.

Any additional comments?

This is a worthwhile book to get to know. It certainly will improve your language skills.
