Say What You Mean!: Move up the social and business ladder--one perfect word after another.
This is not a textbook! I repeat. This is not a textbook! Too many people go through twelve years of education, and some people, four years of college and still make the same simple few grammatical errors over and over again. Is the correct word "I" or "me", "bad" or "badly", "lie" or "lay"? Don't go through life making the same simple grammatical errors and confusing your sophisticated listener. Whether that sophisticated listener is your boss in a business setting or a person you are speaking to in a social setting, "SAY WHAT YOU MEAN" and say it with confidence.
