Title: Grammar
Subtitle: A Pocket Guide
Written By: Susan J. Behrens
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415493598/
Description:

If you've ever wanted a quick and easy guide to verbs and adverbs, commas
and apostrophes, clauses and prepositions, then this is a must-have book
for you. Easing readers gently into the study of the structure of English,
Grammar: A Pocket Guide covers common questions such as:

Is it "10 items or less" or "10 items or fewer"?

Should I say "If I were you" or "if I was you"?

Can you start a sentence with "And" or "Because"?

When do you use "whom"?

What is the difference between "lie" and "lay"?

Is it "I feel bad" or "I feel badly"?

Using examples from everyday speech and writing, this handy book "cracks
the code" of off-putting grammatical jargon so that readers can enjoy
learning how to think and talk about grammar. With practice exercises, a
glossary, and suggestions for further reading, Grammar: A Pocket Guide is
the perfect foundation for anyone wanting to improve his or her writing and
communication.
