Mignon Fogarty, a.k.a. Grammar Girl, is determined to wipe out bad grammar—but she's 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 Girl's 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 Girl's latest audiobook should be heard by every communicator.

"Fogarty states, "Writing badly is like dressing in a lime skort and an orange plaid sweater--people notice." However, she does not point out such gaucheries with glee. Her voice is encouraging; her advice sage for pros, business folk, or basic bloggers. Mignon launched "Grammar Girl" as a podcast in 2006 to help people remember simple grammar rules. In her book, she moves beyond common grammar questions to Twittering how-to's (in 140 characters with proper punctuation) and the etiquette of email. Advice is delivered in a witty, gracious manner with the clever use of mnemonics that make the audio delivery especially effective. In closing, Fogarty invites listeners to a "grammar party at my place" with free weekly podcasts and an email newsletter. D.P.D. 2009 Audies Finalist (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
