great book

It's short, it's quick, it's easy. I have six grammar books in all, some of which offer longer explanations if I truly want to understand something, but I always start with this one first. I've recommended it several times to different writers.

A clear-cut reference.

I like this book because it "cuts to the chase." It's a lean book with a lot of instructional power. It simply delivers fact without the fluff.

Concise & Comprehensive Reference

This is a handy, concise reference for everyday grammar. It would benefit everyone if more writers would refer to its rules. With the advent of e-mail, more and more Americans are writing every day, with less and less literacy. As to the "Business Grammar", please note the illustration. The word "business" is not in the actual title, and the book seems to have no special orientation toward business usage. It is, however, quite comprehensive, and should meet the needs of most writers - whether business, professional, or personal.

One of my favorite grammar guides

Lucid, informative, & portable. My 1st edition (1986) is in tatters, so thanks for this update.
