Book Description
Early in the history of English, the words "grammar" and "glamour" meant the same thing: the power to charm.
Roy Peter Clark, author of Writing Tools, aims to put the glamour back in grammar with this fun, engaging alternative to stuffy instructionals.
In this practical guide, readers will learn everything from the different parts of speech to why effective writers prefer concrete nouns and active verbs.

THE GLAMOUR OF GRAMMAR givesreaders all the tools they need to"live inside the language" -- to take advantage of grammar to perfect their use of English, to instill meaning, and to charm through their writing.

With this indispensable book, readers will come to see just how glamorous grammar can be.

    I read this in one sitting. If you find the English language fascinating, it's for you. And if you're a writer, it's a must-have. Clark shows how to use grammar and punctuation to make your writing more effective. His examples are excellent.
