    Basically what you'd learn in a grade-school or high school English textbook, only more concise. A nice refresher course, if simplistic. I didn't really learn anything new, although then again, I am a grammar police, so . . . ;) Cobb's writing style is casual and engaging, and her list of resources are helpful.

    Age Appropriate For: All Ages Best for Ages: 8 and up As some of you are probably painfully aware, grammar is not my thing. It isn’t that I don’t care, but it seems that every time someone tries to explain the rules, I only become more confused. Seriously? How am I supposed to understand where those silly little commas go? The answer is to buy this little book. This book was so, so, so helpful! I still have a long way to go before I really have a firm grasp on all the principles. However, I finally Age Appropriate For: All Ages Best for Ages: 8 and up As some of you are probably painfully aware, grammar is not my thing. It isn’t that I don’t care, but it seems that every time someone tries to explain the rules, I only become more confused. Seriously? How am I supposed to understand where those silly little commas go? The answer is to buy this little book. This book was so, so, so helpful! I still have a long way to go before I really have a firm grasp on all the principles. However, I finally feel like I have a chance. This book is not huge and intimidating. It is not peppered with crude references that some grammar books have. It is a short guide to grammar from someone who loves it to those of us who need the help. After reading the section on commas, I felt like I had a better understanding on how to use them than any of the grammar books I read for school. Like I said, I know I still have a long way to go in applying them. However, I plan to start having this book on hand as I edit. The rest of the book was also helpful. No section is very large; in fact you can read the whole book in about an hour. Yet, those short pages are packed with helpful information. If you want to learn more about grammar and improve your writing, this book is a must have. It isn’t expensive, so grab yourself a copy. I highly recommend this book for writers, homeschool students, and anyone wanting to improve their grammar skills.

    This is the very best writing guide for authors and writers that I've come across yet. It's quick, simple, easy, and fun--yes fun, and that's coming from someone who hates grammar and all its rules and regulations with a passion! If you are a writer of any kind--fiction, nonfiction, blogger, journalist, etc., this book is simply essential for you. I really can't recommend it highly enough!

    I will admit when Rachelle said you could read a guide to grammar in one sitting, I was skeptical. Yep, I read it in one sitting. And I'm not a fast reader, either. It is a quick and basic guide that is good to have on hand when you need to review. I even learned a couple of new things.

    Introduction: If you are a writer who has problems with grammar, this is the perfect book for you. Rachelle has lots of great tips given in a funny way that entertains as well as teaches. Clarity: 1/1 Everything written was clear and easy to understand. I appreciated the tips she had and the way she presented them. Usability: 1/1 I'm usually pretty good with grammar, but I still learned quite a few useful pieces of information. Readability: 1/1 The formatting was well done and made it easy to read.

Overall writing quality: 1/1 Considering this was a book about writing well, I would hope it had good writing quality. And it did. Un-put-down-ability: .75/1 There were a few times when I wanted to put the book down, but mostly because it was getting to be too much information to process. It's pretty short, too, but full of lots of information. Conclusion: 4.75/5 As a writer, I think this is a book that every writer should read. So go get your copy of it here. It's only $2.99 on Kindle as of this posting.

    This book has been on my TBR shelf since before it came out. I finally got around to reading it. It is a short eBook and super easy to read in one sitting. In some ways, it reminded me of Self-Editing On A Penny: A Comprehensive Guide by Ashlyn Forge, but without quite as much detail or reasoning (and, I have to admit, I really like logical reasoning). Rachelle has a fun style of presenting material.

It is a short eBook and super easy to read in one sitting. In some ways, it reminded me of Self-Editing On A Penny: A Comprehensive Guide by Ashlyn Forge, but without quite as much detail or reasoning (and, I have to admit, I really like logical reasoning). Rachelle has a fun style of presenting material. The main thing that stood out to me in reading it was “why a writer should like grammar” more-so than the rules that need to be followed. Since I am already a writer who loves grammar and finds the need of it, the information presented in these pages were not new to me, so I didn’t really feel like I learned anything. However, if I had a writer I was tutoring, this is just the book I would hand to them to help them. It’s short, concise, and very clean (which is important to me). If I were to take a critical approach to it, some of the topics covered seemed more the author’s personal opinions than actual grammar rules—but then, it kind of fits in with her approach to writing: sometimes, you do what feels best. I can see where this will be helpful to some, yet nothing more than a refresher for others.

    This was the best book on grammar I've ever read. It made it easy to understand, and easy to apply to actual writing. I love this authors writing style in fiction and non fiction. I hope I can get this in paperback someday to put with my writing books. This was the best book on grammar I've ever read. It made it easy to understand, and easy to apply to actual writing.

    Write Well: A Grammar Guide is a short, well-written ebook on grammar that will appeal to authors and bloggers alike. If you have been searching online for an ebook on grammar that is easy to understand, this one is for you. Reading this ebook was a great refresher course for me, which covered the use of commas, periods, semi-colons and dashes. The author took the often grueling study of grammar usage and spun it with humor which I enjoyed. It was refreshing.

    To be honest, I didn't actually realize this book was a grammar book when I downloaded it onto my Kindle... all I know was that from so many recommendations I simply had to read it. You see, I never would have been caught reading a grammar book curled up in bed for fun. And I read this in less than 24 hours. It was informative, easy to read, and a great overview of the basics of grammar. :) To be honest, I didn't actually realize this book was a grammar book when I downloaded it onto my Kindle... all I know was that from so many recommendations I simply had to read it.

    This book isn't that much different than what I'm learning in English II, but definitely much more fun and easier to grasp than a high school textbook. As it only takes 20/30 minutes to read, it's definitely worth it!

    Grammar is not my strong suit, so I honestly wasn't sure what I would think of this book. I loved it! Rachelle broke down the most common grammar mistakes into an easy-to-understand format that was far from boring. In fact, I wish the book had been longer, because Rachelle's writing style is that good! Grammar is not my strong suit, so I honestly wasn't sure what I would think of this book. I loved it!

    I do care about grammar and I found everything to be correct in this short book. Yet, it is not a full-fledged, all-including type of a book. So much the better because it focuses on those most common mistakes of newbie writers; for example, the use of commas and semicolons. In addition, it is easy reading, and speaking of my needs, I appreciate the reference list of the transitional words and phrases at the end of the book.

I certainly hope to see more such books in other areas of grammar by this author.

    This is a great little guide on grammar for writers which I picked up for free and, for some foolish reason, keep forgetting I have. It covers all of the basics in a concise and easy to understand guide which, at least in its kindle form, is easy to reference while I work.
