Karen L. Reddick Releases 2nd Edition of "Grammar Done Right"

I thought I'd let you know that the long-awaited second edition of Karen L. Reddick’s Grammar Done Right is now available (ISBN 9780978990435).

I love it for its clear Contents and Index; they make it easy to use the book as a reference and I prefer this book to the ever-famous and often-misunderstood Fowler’s.

Like Fowler’s or my own Frugal Editor, it by no means covers every grammar and style exigency (imagine the size a book would need to be to do that!), but I feel certain that even a writer who is also an excellent editor will find something in it to love. Learn more at and

Carolyn -- I went to check out the book, but for some reason the links didn't work for me. I did manage to get to the publisher's website and Karen's website as well. The video on Karen's website didn't play in my browser. I'm still interested in learning more about the contents of the book -- table of contents, for example.

I'm off to check Amazon to see if there's any information about the book there.

Carolyn, I tried the links to the author's sites, but they didn't work.

Books on grammar are so useful to us writers!
