Roy Peter Clark, one of America's most influential writing teachers, wants to change that by putting the glamour back into grammar.Whether you are composing a novel, a memo, an e-mail, or a blog post, you can immediately apply any of the lessons Clark lays out in fifty short chapters. Covering everything from the parts of speech to why effective writers prefer concrete nouns and active verbs, Clark teaches you how to use periods, commas, and semicolons to their fullest advantage; befriend the lively verb to be; avoid ?hyper-grammar?; properly place those tricky modifiers; and harness other secrets of powerful prose.
