"Far from some boring subject only ruler-wielding schoolmarms care about, grammar is the foundation of anything you write, and by extension, one's professional reputation. This exhaustive reference leaves no stone unturned, while its lesson/exercise format (nearly 100 exercises!) effectively reinforces a reader's understanding. It belongs on the bookshelf of anyone who has to write anything, any time. Highly recommended."

"Arlene Miller's The Best Grammar Workbook Ever! is the most comprehensive and instructive guide to grammar that I've read in a long while. With authority and humor, Miller covers every grammatical concept you'll need to master your writing."
Jeff Deck, Co-author of The Great Typo Hunt: Two Friends Changing the World, One Correction at a Time
"Proud to say Arlene not only taught me about grammar rules I wasn't sure about, but she set me straight on things I'd been doing wrong for years and didn't know it."
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author
"There's much to admire in this comprehensive yet relatively straightforward book. I went straight to a terminology question I'd been thinking about (the difference between relative and demonstrative pronouns) and came away with a clear understanding of this difference. On pages 56-57, I think the writer does a good job explaining the "his or her" situation. It would take a very motivated student to go through this text without a teacher or tutor, but I feel that someone motivated enough to do so would come away with a very good understanding of grammar, punctuation, and usage.I think the examples of various rules are easy to understand and well chosen."
-Judge, 25th Annual Writer's Digest Awards
"I have always struggled with teaching grammar, and this has been a great start for me. I like its quick little blurbs of grammar with small practice opportunities. The students are engaged despite their resistance to grammar time."
