Publisher Comments:

The truth about English is that it can get pretty boring. Dangling modifiers, gerunds, punctuation marks--its enough to make you want to drop out of high school. Swearing and sex on the other hand, well, these time-honored pastimes warm the cockles of our hearts. Now, The Elements of F*cking Style drags English grammar out of the ivory tower and into the gutter, injecting a dull subject with a much-needed dose of color.

This book addresses everything from common questions (“What the hell is a pronoun?”) to philosophical conundrums (“Does not using paragraphs or periods make my thesis read like it was written by a mental patient?”). Other valuable sections include:

•All Ive got in this world are my sentences and my balls, and I dont break em for nobody

 •A colon is more than an organ that gets cancer

•Words your bound to f*ck up

 One glance at your friends blog should tell you everything you need to know about the sorry state of the English language. This book gives you the tools you need to stop looking like an idiot on message boards and in interoffice memos. Grammar has never before been so much f*cking fun.
