The book in one sentence: A general overview about punctuation told in a hilarious way – if you’re pro-punctuation, that is.
Who would you recommend it to: Punctuation sticklers! Anyone else would dislike it, at the very least, I think.
OK bits: I learnt the difference between American and British punctuation (who knew there was one?).
Boring bits: It can be a bit dreary at times. Well, punctuation ain’t no gossip magazine material!
Verdict: I like this book because it’s witty and educational. Though it’s not touted as a reference for punctuation, one can learn about the important bits of punctuation. In that sense, it’s not as dry as a grammar book might be then.
ps. Let’s test your punctuation with a quiz based on the book! 🙂
