Adults often begin writing and realized that they don't remember all the rules they learned in Mrs. Peacock's 8th grade English class. Most adults in the workplace today have purchased -- on at least one occasion -- a writing guide.

And for anyone who has to communicate professionally -- whether a formal business presentation or a general improvement in their everyday conversational ability -- has gone to the bookstore to look for a grammar and style guide.Teach Yourself Grammar and Style in 24 Hours is a straightforward guide to everything from basic nouns and verbs to expressing clear thought in writing. Based on the proven Teach Yourself formula, the authors will construct 24 1-hour lessons on grammar and style that build sequentially. Since grammar and style work together, readers can see how one chapter affects the next as they progress. Best of all -- at $17.99, readers can purchase one all inclusive grammar and style book for more coverage and a better price.

Aspiring doctors have medical school. Karate students have belts of different colors. Pianists have scales and arpeggios. But what system do writers have for getting and staying "in shape," to help them focus, practice, and make progress? A Writer's Workbook is Caroline Sharp's ingenious collection of exercises to inspire, encourage, warm up, and jump-start anyone who writes. A wise and funny friend who will cheerlead you through even your darkest can't-write days and "every idea I've ever had is awful" nights, she provides encouraging suggestions, hilarious observations, and an amazingly vivid catalogue of writers' neuroses (with advice on overcoming them, of course). From "Roget's Resume" and "Emulating Ernest" to "End Well," "The Rewrite Rut," and "Dear John," the exercises in this generous, wry workbook will keep your ideas fresh, your mind open, and your pen moving.
