    " entertaining for those who have mastered English grammar, not recommended for those who have not "

    " Although there were places in this book that were quite funny, mostly it seemed like an open letter, cutting down to size anyone who has dared to correct the author of her use in punctuation, spelling, and word choice. As annoying and smug as some grammarians can be, I believe it is just as annoying smug to write a whole book on their smugness, generalizing a whole group of people, and occasionally throwing in a useful rule and some humor. She lost me when she tried to tie, no matter how loosely, smug grammarians with political leanings. It made me look at the rest of the book as being nothing but degrading nonsense and drivel. "

    " I will have to disagree with most reviewers as I found this book funny and I did not mind the commentary on grammar snobs - as I thought that was kind of the point of the book given the title. I am not a details person and grammar is often lost on me, but I do have friends that are more than willing to point out my errors. I took great pleasure in knowing the discord on the rules, validating some of what I knew and learning a few tidbits on the way. A fun read! "
