Description
Stressed over syntax? Unsure about noun/verb agreement? Afraid to commit a grammatical faux pas? Fear not, dear reader; in this book you have the perfect guide to proper grammar and style. With plenty of instruction as well as a little pomp, this refresher on the modern rules of writing entertains as it enlightens, making your reading experience enjoyable and your knowledge sound as you regain your masterful grip of the English language. Author Phineas J. Caruthers is a gentleman and a scholar, and never ends a sentence with a preposition. When not saving others from dreadful grammatical errors or puffing thoughtfully on his pipe, you might find him riding his penny-farthing to the nearest haberdashery, or waxing the ends of his moustache.
