Publisher Comments:

Mignon Fogarty, a.k.a. Grammar Girl, is determined to wipe out bad grammar—but shes 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 Girls 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 readers recall and apply those troublesome grammar rules. Chock full of tips on style, business writing, and effective e-mailing, Grammar Girls latest audiobook should be heard by every communicator.

Synopsis:

Are you stumped by split infinitives? Do you avoid the words “lay”  and “lie” altogether? Grammar Girl is here to help!

Synopsis:

Mignon Fogarty can't remember whether it was a misused semicolon, a chronic case of comma splicing, or an affect when an effect was called for, but at some point she had seen one mangled sentence too many.

In less than a year, more than five million Grammar Girl podcast episodes have been downloaded, and Mignon has appeared in the pages of The New York Times and dispensed grammar tips on Oprah, In Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips to Clean Up Your Writing, Mignon tackles some of the most common mistakes people make while communicating. From lay vs. lie and affect vs. effect to split infinitives and run-on sentences, Grammar Girl offers clear explanations and effective memory tricks to help listeners write (and say) it right.
