George Kovacs, Ph.D., your ability to communicate is, ultimately, more important than your appearance, wealth or fame because, ultimately, you are what you say.
If you want your organizations’ letters and documents to be optimally literate, you must hear Dr. George Kovacs, the hilarious advocate of the English Language.
When it comes to grammar, do you tend to stammer?
You take no delight in speaking or in writing?
Hate the complication of proper punctuation?
Use the wretched slang which disgraces proper language?
Your mind isn’t jelling with the correct spelling?
Your brain, very thin, lacks hint or glint of syntax?
