Very good. Appearance of only slight previous use. Cover and binding show a little wear. All pages are undamaged with potentially only a few, small markings. Help save a tree. Buy all your used books from Thriftbooks. Read. Recycle and Reuse.
While this small book would be fun for anyone with an interest in words, sentence structure, and grammar, it will be particularly helpful for those teachers who despair of finding interesting ways to get these matters accross to young people. Diagramming sentences is a challenge and much like putting a puzzle together. Believe me, even the teacher will enjoy, and learn, from diagramming.

Wacky Yet Practical
I cannot describe the relief I felt when I saw this book. It's not just me--I'm not the only sentence diagramming nutter in the world. I love diagramming, as spectacularly odd as that is. This great little book is more that a simple 'how-to.' Florey waxes poetic on the joy of the diagram, offers a history of the fun and by the end has diagrammed a sentence so complex that it covers more than 2 pages. If you're looking for graduation gift or a Christmas present for that logophile in your life, this is the way to go.
