This is a book that explains the grammar that people really need to know, such as the fact that an apostrophe is the difference between a company that knows its s and a company that knows it's s , or the importance of capital letters to avoid ambiguity in such sentences as 'I helped my Uncle Jack off his horse.' The chaos might be sloppy syntax, a disregard for grammar or a fundamental misunderstanding of what grammar is. It could be an adherence to 'rules' that have no real basis and get in the way of fluent, unambiguous communication at the expense of ones that are actually useful. Clear, honest use of English has many enemies, politicians, business and marketing people, local authority and civil service jargonauts, rail companies, estate agents, academics and some journalists. This is the book to help defeat them.
