My Grammar and I (Or Should That Be 'Me'?)

A runaway hit and Sunday Times bestseller, My Grammar and I has continued to grow in popularity, becoming the go-to guide for grammar. My Grammar and I offers amusing examples of awful grammar, while steering you in the direction of grammatical greatness. Taking you on a tour of the English language through the minefield of rules and conditions that can catch you out, from dangling modifiers to split infinitives, it highlights the common pitfalls that every English language user faces on a day to day basis. Refreshing everything you should have learnt at school and more, My Grammar and I is informative yet entertaining — an ideal buy for any English language enthusiast.

Great book for poop reading (while you attend any language-related bachelor degree). A bit hardread for non-native.

Knowing the rules – and breaking them because you feel like it, not because you don’t know any better – will make you a more confident, creative and entertaining writer and speaker.

Graham Greene once wrote:

‘Adjectives are to be avoided unless they are strictly necessary; adverbs too, which is even more important. When I open a book and find that so and so has “answered sharply” or “spoken tenderly”, I shut it again: It’s the dialogue itself which should express the sharpness or the tenderness without any need to use adverbs to underline them.’
