You Did Not Choose Your Grandma
Even if you can’t choose your grandma, you can choose your grammar! If you’re looking for the best book to guide you, choose v-e-r-y carefully. Look at the Table of Contents: are all the elements of U.S. language there? Look up the guidelines for something you’ve been wondering about: does it give you a usable solution? How often is the word “rule” used (without the quotation marks)? Does this grammarian claim to have “all the answers”? BEWARE!
