Rather than attempting to comprise all aspects of grammar the way that standard texts do, this concise guide simply covers the “Dirty Dozen”—the 12 most common grammatical mistakes—demonstrating how to fix them with a variety of fresh examples. The compact and convenient format makes it ideal for rendering quick-and-easy “first aid” in the field, presenting its material creatively and visually in a simplified, graphic approach. Ideal for anyone from high school students to middle-aged office workers, this reference is the all-inclusive solution for those who need answers immediately, proving that getting help with grammar doesn't have to be boring or burdensome.

Joe Hayden is an award-winning journalism professor at the University of Memphis and has taught writing for more than 20 years. He is a former journalist whose work has been featured in newspapers and magazines as well as on the radio, television, and online. He lives in Memphis, Tennessee.
