Write With Excellence 201 by Joyce K. Ellis is an amusing take on grammar. I was a bit skeptical upon hearing about this book, because it was described as a grammar textbook and also as a page-turner.
But, this book really turned into a page-turner for me. I was about half-way through the book before I realized I hadn’t started taking notes. I decided then to read it again when I was done, and take notes the second time.
I don’t know about you, but I have never read cover-to-cover what could easily be a textbook. And here, I’m reading this is one twice, back-to-back. It just goes to show that you can teach an old dog new tricks. Even better, I have been reading some of her humorous anecdotes aloud to friends and family members. It’s been a fun read.
I highly recommend this book for anybody who works with the English language. In fact, I recommend it for all people, but especially for those who depend on the language to make their living.
