About Jane Straus
When the Internet was born, she launched a website, GrammarBook.com, which has helped millions of people all over the world improve their English grammar. Straus became a sought-after speaker in the fields of grammar, public speaking, and life coaching. Her other book is Enough Is Enough! Stop Enduring and Start Living Your Extraordinary Life (Jossey-Bass, 2005).
Following Straus's untimely passing in early 2011, her husband, Lester Kaufman, assumed management of GrammarBook.com and maintained Jane's legacy by continuing to issue weekly e-newsletters containing grammar tips to help people improve their English skills, and answering reader's questions in, as much as possible, the same light, direct, and instructive tone that Jane used. In collaboration with Tom Stern, he also undertook an update and revision of the Blue Book which was published in February 2014.
