Trade-like Grammar Bookhelps students understand how the grammatical moves they make reveal their personality traits and present their persona to their readers.The text's rhetorical approach emphasizes the transformative power that grammar choices can have on a writer and helps students develop the personality the wish to portray in their writing. Writers can use the imperative mood to suggest control, colons to be assertive, parenthesis to keep the conversation real, and even commas to present an organized persona. By showing students how seemingly small choices can help them manage the impression they make on readers, Trade-like Grammar Book helps students become more deliberate writers.Instead of a rules-driven approach comprehensive in scope and exhaustive in examples, Trade-like Grammar Book uses brevity and humor to engage students and offer them a different way to understand grammar.

Lawrence Weinstein is University Professor of Physics at Old Dominion University. He is the coauthor of "Guesstimation: Solving the World's Problems on the Back of a Cocktail Napkin" (Princeton).
