Book Overview

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELER - A sharp, funny grammar guide they'll actually want to read, from Random House's longtime copy chief and one of Twitter's leading language gurus

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOKS OF THE YEAR BY O: THE OPRAH MAGAZINE

Essential (and delightful )--People

We all write, all the time: books, blogs, emails. Lots and lots of emails. And we all want to write better. Benjamin Dreyer is here to help.

As Random House's copy chief, Dreyer has upheld the standards of the legendary publisher for more than two decades. He is beloved by authors and editors alike--not to mention his followers on social media--for deconstructing the English language with playful erudition.
