“Sin and Sintax is one of the rare books that recognizes—and even celebrates—the fact that good writing has little to do with ‘rules’ and much to do with a true understanding of effective prose. Connie Hale provides us an invaluable service by showing us what works and what doesn’t in the real world, regardless of what the pedants say.”
—Jesse Sheidlower, Senior Editor, Random House Dictionaries
“This new grammar book is…light-years ahead of what you’d read in eighth-grade English: With vivid, contemporary examples of what to do and what not to do, it’s fun to read.”
“Probably the hippest grammar guide ever written, this book shows how to write for results, wholesome or subversive.”
