According to a report from the Department of Education, says Time magazine, "nearly half of all adult Americans read and write so poorly that they have trouble holding down decent jobs." The National Commission on Writing estimates that American businesses spend $3.1 billion annually training employees to write.

"In today's economy and tight job market, it is even more important to put your best foot forward by communicating effectively in both writing and speaking," says Arlene Miller, author of The Best Little Grammar Book Ever! 101 Ways to Impress With Your Writing and Speaking, published by bigwords101.

Finally, you can find all the answers to your grammar questions in one easy-to-understand book! Is it I or me? Who or whom? Affect or effect? Swam or swum? Do I put a comma here? How do I spell accommodate, anyway? It all makes me want to lie ― or is it lay ― down for a nap!
