A wealth of examples, charts, and engaging exercises makes The Little Gold Grammar Book an invaluable guide for anyone who wants to master those skills that will make a good writer even better.

*Grammar: A 100-question quiz focuses on the most useful areas of the “big six” grammar categories – subject-verb agreement, pronoun usage, modification, parallelism, comparisons, and verb tenses.

*Idioms: A compilation of 200 idioms provides a convenient review of tricky “grammatical phrases.” Do we write prefer x to y or prefer x over y … in comparison to or in comparison with … regarded as or regarded to be?
*Review: A selection of 30 multiple-choice problems, complete with explanations and author’s notes, integrate key concepts of grammar, diction, idioms, and style. *Also included are special sections on editing tips and punctuation, American English vs. British English, and traditional writing vs. digital writing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unshackle Your Grammar! 30 juin 2011
Format:Broché
This book uses the same brevity and common sense as does Royal's previous publication The Little Red Writing Book. Simple, easy to follow and relevant, The Gold Book is an "interactive" grammar guide with the right balance of exposition and quiz questions to hold your interest and help unlock the chains of rusty grammar.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Little Gold Grammar Book is full of Gold Nuggets! 21 décembre 2010
Format:Broché
I wish I knew about this book prior to writing my award-winning children's
book. I went through many different resources and a total of six different
editors to ensure that all the proper tweaking was in place. I noted things
in this grammar book that I haven't found in any other book. The entry on
how to capitalize titles is excellent and something I had long wondered about.

***
Titles and capitalization. With respect to book, magazines, songs, etc.,
confusion often exists as to when titles are italicized and when they are
placed in quotation marks. Note that underlining is no longer used to
identify titles (gone are the days of the typewriter). The general rule is
that longer works or full works are placed in italics. Partial works or
short works are placed in quotation marks, and are not italicized. This
means that the titles of books, magazines, newspapers, movies, TV programs,
radio programs, plays, and names of albums are italicized. However, the
titles of articles, essays, short stories, poems, chapters in a book,
episodes in a TV series, and songs are placed in quotation marks.

Three rules are always observed with regard to the capitalization of titles:
always capitalize the first and last words of a title and never use a period
after the last word. Beyond this, the rules for capitalization of titles are
somewhat arbitrary. The broad rule is to capitalize all important words and
not to capitalize small, unimportant words. Important words include all
nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs. Exceptions may include the
verbs "is," "am," and "are" and the word "as," regardless of what part of
speech it represents.

I turned down lots of other grammar books because I did not have time to pore over long, detailed manuals. This book was a fast read but strengthened my grammar skills noticeably. It was actually fun, too. I recommend it highly.
