MY THOUGHTSLOVED ITThis book is a true gem! I really wish I had access to something like this while I was in college and questioning my writing skills. The grammar rules you thought you knew, but somehow forgot, are brought back again with quick wit and easy to understand language. A reference guide like this will be welcome on anyone's shelf especially since Riefer Johnston uses a lot of humor to get her points across. I especially enjoyed the Whom versus Who discussion. I have always had a devil of a time getting those straight. I have to give extra points for the index which lets you get straight to the answer for those specific questions about commas, hyphens and other nit-picky things that grammar fiends adore. There are a lot of writing manuals available but this one is easy to understand and very accessible. There are also a lot of tips to make your words more powerful and ways to captivate an audience. This book is a winner!
