Just as we should think before we speak, we need to think before we write.

Most of us are not poets or novelists, but we are all writers. We email, text, and post; we craft memos and reports, menus and outdoor signage, birthday cards and sticky notes on the fridge.

Get a Grip on Your Grammar is a grammar book for those who hate grammar books, a writing resource filled with quick answers and a playful style--not endless, indecipherable grammar jargon.

Get a Grip on Your Grammar is The Elements of Style for the Twitter generation. Designed for student, business, and creative-writing audiences alike, its easily digestible, occasionally witty writing tips will finally teach you:
The differences between "lay" and "lie."
The proper usage of "affect" and "effect."
Where to put punctuation around quotation marks.
The meaning of "e.g." versus "i.e."
The perils of overusing the word "suddenly."
That apostrophes should not be thrown about like confetti.
And 243 more great tips.

Writers owe it to themselves and to everyone who sees their written words to get it right. With Get a Grip on Your Grammar , they finally can (not "may").
