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.

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.

A fast but smart read! 21 juillet 2013

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.
