I love to use grammar in sentences!!!!!!!!!!!  May 15, 2002
Tom Ready helped my a lot. He showed me how to use grammar in sentences and let me tell you it is FUN!!! Let me give you some exciting sentences that you use grammar in. GRAMMAR is fun. You can have fun with GRAMMAR. You will have fun with GRAMMAR. You can't have fun without GRAMMAR. You can't do anything that is more fun than GRAMMAR. GRAMMAR is the only thing to do with your time. You can't live without GRAMMAR. You will die if you don't use GRAMMAR in every part of your life. See, this book showed me everything I need in life and that is grammar. I don't think I could live if I didn't have this book. Now there is another Grammar Wars book and let me tell it is even better. Well I want to thank Tom Ready for giving me something to live for and die for.........PRAISE GRAMMAR!!!!!!!!!!!
 
The Student  Jan 10, 2002
I have been a student of Mr. Tom Ready for the last three and a half years now and I think that he has an amazing talent and skill for teaching students in English and Drama. I've learned many things from him and really enjoy his classes. He has the ability to bring out the best in many unlikely students. This book, which contains many games written by some of his students, is an absolute geniously entertaining way to learn the parts of speech and the English language. Our class is presently traveling to teach Grammar Wars and it has been completely successful. I'd like to thank Mr. Ready for his time and effort in teaching all of us students in his classes at Lassen High School.

The most wonderous thing in the world  Nov 30, 2001
Today I am going to review this book about its own awe in glory. No book existed that could come close to its power and influence. Until reading these Uphorik words my life was but a desolate waste land of iltersy. I would recommend it to anyone who wishes to enjoy a life of gladness because they can speek gooder.
