Sheri Graves reviews The Best Little Grammar Book Ever!
This Second Edition of Arlene Miller’s Best Little Grammar Book Ever is highly recommended for students, teachers, writers and anyone else who wants to produce written material that won’t make intelligent people laugh at idiocy. There is a reason Miller is called “The Grammar Diva.” In simple, easy-to-understand terms, Miller explains grammar rules and how to negotiate the world of written language. Not only that, she has a sense of humor that holds the reader’s interest from one page to the next. She is a former teacher, a well-known speaker on the subject and a best-selling author on grammar. There is no better grammar guide to have in your bookcase or briefcase. Her other grammar books also are worthwhile for anyone who is serious about the written word.
