"Say It Right" takes a lighthearted, down-to-earth, and compassionate approach to speaking and writing correct English. With its witty illustrations, simple Do's and Don'ts, and even simpler explanations, this is a book that will help you forget the terrors of grammar. Ever wonder when to use “I” and when to use “me”? How about a few of the Cantankerous Couples: “Lie” and Lay,” “Feel Bad” and “Feel Badly,” “Who” and “Whom.” "Say It Right" helps you get it right without delving into participles, gerunds, and adjectives acting as adverbs. We know you're busy and practical. You want to speak and write correct English, but you don't want to invest a lot of time learning how. "Say It Right" focuses only on the most common mistakes, while providing a little comic relief. Keep "Say It Right" in the glove compartment, in the bathroom, on the kitchen counter—wherever you'll pick it up and read a page. Take it at your own pace. Have fun. It's English. It's your language. Put it to work for you.
