by Harry Shefter ... Here's what's different about this book - there are NO rules or terms of grammar in it. You learn to speak and write correctly by a brand-new method that has worked for tens or thousands. It's fast and easy. It will work for you. "The ability to express ideas in writing and in speaking heads the list of requirements to success" - Peter Drucker, economist
Did you ever hear of a mental block? It's a massive barrier in your mind, but like the Maginot line, it can be penetrated. Your mind may be blocked you imagine all well-read, literate persons are precious, prissy characters who go around spouting Shakespeare. There may be a few of those people, but that is not Shakespeare's fault. We say that English is an easy language to learn. Making English behave may be a little troublesome. You can play safe by writing dull little sentences, and they, of course, are less frustrating to the reader than involved wrong sentences. But since the sentence you write or speak is what the reader or listener uses as criterion in judging you, it is good sense to learn how to be become its master.
