About the Author:

Paul Brians is Professor Emeritus of English at Washington State University. His 'Common Errors in English' Web site has been recommended by BBC Online, Writer's Digest, Yahoo! Internet Life magazine, USA Today, refdesk.com, the Seattle Times, and many other periodicals and publications.

Review:

I rarely take a Grammar Girl podcast live without at least quadruple-checking my main thesis, and Common Errors in English Usage has quickly become one of my most valued fact-checking resources. --'Grammar Girl' Mignon Fogarty

Paul Brians has written a handy and likable reference tool. When he gives you the right answer, he sends you off chuckling--a winning combination. --Jack Miles, former literary editor, LA Times

I d call Paul Brians' book incredible, fabulous, or fantastic, except thanks to him, I know now that none of those words are what I really mean. Let's just say that Common Errors in English Usage is the most cheerfully useful book I've read since the Kama Sutra. --Scott Simon, host of NPR's Weekend Edition
