We get sloppy in text messages and tweets, and it becomes harder and harder to remember the rules when we need them.
Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas (PRWEB) December 4, 2008
Let's say someone's walking around the office with bad breath. Or they're interviewing for a job with a piece of spinach stuck in their teeth? People would wonder why they don't tend to the problem. Bad grammar is just as noticeable and offensive. It represents the user unfavorably to the world.
Worse, it can kill their career. A poorly written cover letter, website, or presentation can blow someone's chances at creating a great first impression, getting a job offer, sealing the deal, retaining a client, or nabbing that promotion. Bad grammar can not only limit someone's job trajectory but also their social standing.
The good news? Business communications expert Dianna Booher , author of "Booher's Rules of Business Grammar: 101 Fast and Easy Ways to Correct the Most Common Errors" (McGraw-Hill, November 2008), assures readers they can correct deficiencies in a matter of a few hours.
"Our technology is also contributing to the demise of good grammar," says Booher. "We get sloppy in text messages and tweets, and it becomes harder and harder to remember the rules when we need them."

In "Booher's Rules of Business Grammar" the author identifies the top 101 mistakes made in emails, presentations, and conversations every day. With funny examples and to-the-point memory tips at the end of each brief chapter, Booher picks apart common mistakes and gives readers the ammo to put them back together.
