My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Missed Periods and Other Grammar Scares is a simple guide to some of the most common grammar rules.
The Bad Stuff: This book is written for a female audience, while this wasn’t a problem for me, it may turn some guys off. My advice, if you are a guy struggling with grammar – do not turn away from it because of the cover and title. While the book covers the most common grammar errors, it would have been good if it dealt with a few others.
The Good Stuff: It is well written, humorous, is in plain language and is easy to understand. The rules it covers are explained well and this book has definitely helped me to improve my grammar and reduce my own errors.
This little book is well worth the money and time spent reading it. Jenny Baranick approaches it with a light hearted manner that makes the book fun to read. And who’d have thought Grammar would be fun. I’m giving it 3 out of 5 golden bookmarks.
