Armed with common sense as well as grammatical skills, columnist Casagrande first helps mere mortals cope with the top 17 grammatical traps and works her way through adverbs, verb and subject agreement, noun diction, pronouns, prepositions, conjunctions, figures of speech and jargon. She gives an opening example, a short evaluation of that example and explanatory text with each lesson. She indicates when sentences or phrases are acceptable in casual writing or speech, gives extra help with such tricky matters as irregular participles, and hands out ammunition to use against pretentious bullies. The result is a remarkably painless way for adults to brush up on their skills or acquire those not learned in their misspent youth (youths?)
