Do you mix up your ‘affects’ and ‘effects’? Do you know when to use ‘less’ or ‘fewer’? And what about dreaded semicolons – are you able put them in your writing without it looking like the world’s most complicated maths equation? Grammar is a bit of black hole in terms of size and matter, and if you’re not confident using it, it can suck you up and spit you out before you can say ‘there, their and they’re’. Although this book won’t give you the formula to the theory of everything grammatical, it will stop you from making embarrassing slip-ups, such as ‘knowing you’re shit’, and leave you feeling confident that you really ‘know your shit’! So say goodbye to your teacher indulging in their red marker pen and to silly CV mistakes, because this book offers bite-sized grammar tips and advice that’ll turn you from logophobic to a grammarian in no time!
