Summary:

Here's some good news for everyone who's ever been bullied into believing they can't speak their own language: The grammar snobs are bluffing. Half the 'rules' they use to humiliate others are really just judgment calls and the rest they don't even understand themselves. Grammar Snobs Are Great Big Meanies is a laugh-out-loud funny collection of anecdotes and essays on grammar and punctuation, as well as hilarious critiques of the self-appointed language experts.

In this collection of hilarious anecdotes and essays, June Casagrande delivers practical language lessons not found anywhere else, demystifying the subject and taking it back from the snobs.

    An enjoyable and little hearted look at the world of grammar, was fun while also being educational. Gave me renewed confidence in my language ability while also showing that grammar rules are complicated but open to interpretations. P.S. If there are any grammar snobs, who find fault in my review, I don't care.... Your all just big meanies!!
