This book came about because the authors had noticed avoidable errors being made by educated citizens as they spoke over the radio and on the television, and wrote in newspapers and magazines. There is no portion of this book that did not find its origins in errors made by correspondents addressing the public in their own fashion. This book may persuade readers to give up on bloopers such as "I got it for free" "Between him and I" and "I visited my relatives in the Sierras" There are sections on verbs, nouns, and how to handle the passage of time. There is advice on how to write with power. For guidance, there are examples of good writing taken from the works of excellent authors. You no doubt have been subjected to books on grammar throughout your education. Our hope is that none has been entertaining and helpful as this book.

About the Author:

Robert B. Stanton earned a Ph.D. at the University of Indiana, Bloomington. He taught for many years at the University of Washington in the English department and retired as an associate professor. Frederic Weekes has a degree from the University of Pennsylvania in electrical engineering. He maintains that what he knows about grammar came from writing data sheets, catalogs, instruction manuals and sales letters over a career lasting more than forty years.
