The English language is full of spellings which look right but are dead wrong. Add in those infuriating sound-alikes (like they're, their, and there), which computer spell checkers usually don't catch, and it's no wonder that people are often embarrassed by misspellings.
This handy book changes all that. Organized phonetically, readers can look up words without having to know how to spell them correctly. Phonetics is the most popular method used to teach spelling, but few books for adults use this time-proven technique. Useful memory shortcuts ("there's a rat in separate") and short definitions of tricky words further help misspellers to fix common errors. The result is a painless approach to 100% correct spelling, a hallmark of literacy that still matters in today's knowledgeable -- oops, make that knowledgeable -- world.
