In today's world of electronic communication, writing has gained renewed importance. Our words create first impressions; our punctuation clarifies meaning. Miscommunication can result in mistakes that cost time, relationships and money.

Our digital-age shortcuts do not foster elegant prose. If it has been years since your last English class, or if you're new to this country, bring your writing — and speaking — skills up to speed with Kathy's "Grammar for People Who Hate Rules: Killer Tips from The Ruthless Editor," an easy-to-use guide packed with examples that will help you speak and write with authority and confidence.
