Are you a grammar snob? Do you want to know more about the English language? Grammar Snobs Are Great Big Meanies is an in-depth look at grammar, punctuation, and writing that will help even the most frustrated person understand how to put words together a little more coherently.

June Casagrande, grammar columnist, shares her years of experience with readers. She humorously discusses shared possessives, split infinitives, conjunctions, punctuation inside or outside of quotation marks, hyphens, and much more. Although this sounds a bit boring and tedious, it is actually informative and interesting. The book is easy to read through in an evening, but it would be handy to keep on the shelf and refer back to in the event of a grammar emergency.

With the popularity of other books such as Lynn Truss’ Eats, Shoots, and Leaves, Grammar Snobs Are Great Big Meanies will have an already primed readership. My one complaint is that Casagrande never picks a particular style and uses its rules as her reference point. There are as many schools of thought and styles out there as there are publications, and she tends to cite them all without making a clear-cut recommendation for the best and most readable method. Otherwise, Grammar Snobs Are Great Big Meanies is a funny and educational book about the rules of grammar.
