Woe is I (USED)

$4.99
More Info
Lovers of the language, unite! You have nothing to lose but your niggling worries if you're haunted by whiches, all tensed up, or baffled by whose and who's. "Woe Is I" is a survival guide for people who want a clear, simple, elegant introduction to good usage. Charming, amusing, sensible, modern, this book is a gift of clarity and good humor. Most of us don't know a gerund from a gerbil and don't care, but we like to speak and write as though we did. Grammar is mysterious to each of us in a different way. Some very smart people mess up pronouns, and there are brilliant souls who can't spell. Many people can't tell the difference between it's and its. Others go out of their way to avoid using quotation marks. Whatever your particular boo-boo, "Woe Is I" can help you fix it without hitting you over the head with a lot of technical jargon. No heavy lifting, no assembly required.
