This is an auction for WOE IS I: THE GRAMMARPHOBE'S GUIDE TO BETTER ENGLISH IN PLAIN ENGLISH, by Patricia T. O'Conner. review:

"I teach writing at a local college. And this is just the most wonderful "grammar book" I have ever experienced. I tell my students that they should not purchase the college textbook but instead buy this one. Many of my students have learned English as a second language through a series of truly awful workbooks that quite clearly were not compiled by people who know anything about how our language really works. They spend weeks on punctuation whereas Patrica O'Conner makes it all so much easier and clearer. And more fun. Come on, what's better than a chapter titled "Comma Sutra"? My students gave me a Comma Sutra tee-shirt a few semesters ago. It is also so much fun to read. O'Conner deals with all the stupid things that grammar books and many instructors drill into students. She begins sentences with "and." Wow! And "but." Oh no! How shameful. She is a retired editor at The New York Times and quite clearly knows a lot more about how our language works than people who churn out these over-burdensome grammar books. Great book."
