Synopsis: We all think of our appearance as our physical looks, mannerisms or dress. And these are certainly important in a job interview, for success in a sales call, for job promotion or social acceptance. But a good appearance also includes how we speak. And our "teacher" (parents, school teachers, friends) may not be very well trained. So we talk as we hear others around us. That leads to the obvious errors (I ain't; he don't; he invited Joe and I; like I say; there's two ways out; I could care less; everyone take their notebook-and many more). This book points out about 500 helpful and amusing tips on talking correctly in ordinary conversation. There are examples given so that the reader can recognize the error and how it should be spoken to be correct. This is not a grammar book. It goes right to the heart of errors in daily routine conversation, points out why they are errors and explains what the correct word or phrase should be. The book also contains sections on pronunciation, foreign words common in English, and a self-administered quiz to help readers realize how frequently errors occur in ordinary conversation.
About the Author: James A. Fisher is a Yale University and Phillips Exeter Academy graduate with a life long interest in English. A successful businessman with advertising, sales, marketing and distribution backgrounds, he has captured the essence of success in this soundbyte generation.
