About-

Here's a guide for English grammar that reads as easily as a story. It is a fresh, simple approach to the basic fundamentals of proper English form. The author, an experienced, accomplished thirty-year business executive enjoying a second career as a university instructor, is in sync with the reader early through interesting stories and illustrations. He takes the reader on a personal, one-step-at-a-time journey through proper form.
Proper Form, Pure and Simple targets the bright individual who got a slow start in English grammar and has never been able to move ahead. It is designed to communicate in understandable terms with the learner who is unsure of his or her language skills. It reaches out to the hesitant, on-the-job professional whose upward mobility requires using proper form.
A careful study of this handbook will allow the bright individual to emerge from the embarrassing shadows of poor grammatical structure. This small primer has the power to pump confidence into the student who dreads writing or speaking because of the fear of making grammatical errors. It can rescue the talented executive who is marooned on a plateau because of the lack of skill with written and spoken language.
This guide will enable the learner to gain a competitive advantage in a world that demands and rewards the use of proper form.

Endorsements & Reviews-

Proper Form, Pure and Simple equips one to use rhetoric masterfully. Its engaging and practical style gives the reader interesting stages of learning. Also it is valuable as a handy reference for future use. It is an honor to endorse Proper Form, Pure and Simple."

"Proper Form, Pure and Simple is an excellent handbook for executive, scholar, and college student alike. Practical and easy to understand, [this] book will be one you reach for often as you compose research papers, memorandums, and business correspondence."

"As a non-traditional student I had anxiety about my English composition class. Using the 'proper form' handouts in Mr. Robinson's class, I was able to gain confidence quickly. Currently, as a high school teacher, I have incorporated 'proper form' handouts into my daily lessons. This has proven to have a tremendous impact on my students' ability to learn grammar."

--Michelle Dollins
