Smashing Grammar

Smashing Grammar

‘Few people understand Grammar like Craig Shrives. Best of all, no one explains it so well and so easily.’ – Chief Executive of Crimestoppers and former Director of the Intelligence Corps, Mark Hallas OBE



Written by a former British Army officer (also the founder of the popular website Grammar Monster), Smashing Grammar is both a go-to grammar guide and a primer for writing clear English.

Smashing Grammar is divided into three sections: A-Z of Punctuation, A-Z of Grammar Essentials and A-Z of Easily Confused Words. Every entry starts with a simple explanation and some basic examples. These are followed by real-life, engaging examples, which have been painstakingly hunted down for their ability to illustrate the point.

Every entry concludes with a ‘Why Should I Care?’ section offering great tips and advice and explaining why the grammar point matters to a writer. Imbued with ‘barrack room’ humour, the writing itself is entertaining and often laugh-out-loud funny, with thousands of sample quotations ranging from Groucho Marx and Homer the Simpson to Karl Marx and Homer the Greek.
