Book summary

What do suicidal pandas, doped-up rock stars, and a naked Pamela Anderson have in common? Theyre all a heck of a lot more interesting than reading about predicate nominatives and hyphens. June Casagrande knows this and has invented a whole new twist on the grammar book. Grammar Snobs Are Great Big Meanies is a laugh-out-loud funny collection of anecdotes and essays on grammar and punctuation, as well as hilarious critiques of the self-appointed language experts.

Chapters include:

  • Im Writing This While NakedThe Oh-So Steamy Predicate Nominative
  • SemicolonoscopyColons, Semicolons, Dashes, and Other Probing Annoyances
  • Ill Take "I Feel Like a Moron" for $200, AlexWhen to Put Punctuation Inside Quotation Marks
  • Snobbery Up with Which You Should Not Put UpPrepositions
  • Is That a Dangler in Your Memo or Are You Just Glad to See Me?
  • HyphensLife-Sucking, Mom-and-Apple-Pie-Hating, Mime-Loving, Nerd-Fight-Inciting Daggers of the Damned

Casagrande delivers practical and fun language lessons not found anywhere else, demystifying the subject and taking it back from the snobs. In short, its a grammar book people will actually want to readjust for the fun of it.
