Ships from Warehouse, Usually in 1-8 Days


In the tradition of Rebecca Elliott's Painless Grammar and William A. Sabin's Gregg Reference Manual, The Scoop on Good Grammar comprehensively presents the rules in an easy-to-follow fashion with oodles of comforting cultural connections to make learning a breeze

In every chapter-Exploration (The Sentence), Art and Invention (Nouns, Pronouns, and Prepositions), Food (Adjectives and Adverbs), Sports (Verbs), Classic Movies and TV (Capitalization), Poetry (Punctuation), and Travel (Special Words)-each example-packed lesson is paired with something familiar and memorable. For example, in Chapter 2 (Art and Invention: Nouns, Pronouns, and Prepositions), Renoir's Luncheon of the Boating Party helps readers digest the definition of a noun.

The user-friendly table of contents, thorough index, abundance of examples, beautiful photographs and illustrations, engaging practice questions, and fun facts throughout have all been carefully arranged for readers to easily learn how to speak and write English with confidence and poise.
