I regret buying this. It's basically an interview, conducted on a planet where hippies rule and everything is just groovy man. Horrible. Audible needs to weed out this sort of thing.

Early in the history of English, glamour and grammar were the same word, linked to enchantment and magical spells. Now grammar brings to mind language bullies and bored-out-of-their-skulls students. Roy Peter Clark, one of America’s most influential writing teachers, wants to change that by putting the glamour back into grammar.

Roy Clark is hilarious! The jokes keep coming, breaking up the monotony of the hours that this lecture takes. Very informative, enlightening and inspiring. It's really a guide to writing well. I'm not one to write reviews, but I just had to leave something on this well thought out book.
