Review:

"But this is more than a witty, elegant and passionate book that should be on every writer's shelf....Lynne Truss's book is...as much an argument for clear thinking as it is a pedantic defence of obsolete conventions of written language."

Nigel Williams, Guardian (London), 11/09/2003

Book Description: GOTHAM BOOKS, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 184 x 128 mm. Brand New Book. The spirited and scholarly #1 New York Times bestseller combines boisterous history with grammar how-to s to show how important punctuation is in our world--period. In Eats, Shoots Leaves, former editor Lynne Truss, gravely concerned about our current grammatical state, boldly defends proper punctuation. She proclaims, in her delightfully urbane, witty, and very English way, that it is time to look at our commas and semicolons and see them as the wonderful and necessary things they are. Using examples from literature, history, neighborhood signage, and her own imagination, Truss shows how meaning is shaped by commas and apostrophes, and the hilarious consequences of punctuation gone awry. Featuring a foreword by Frank McCourt, and interspersed with a lively history of punctuation from the invention of the question mark in the time of Charlemagne to George Orwell shunning the semicolon, Eats, Shoots Leaves makes a powerful case for the preservation of proper punctuation.
