If you don't love punctuation this work will bore you. But if you are motivated to learn it covers the main uses of common punctuation marks. The introduction fetishises correctness (i.e. conventionality) for its own sake but if communication is the ultimate goal, conventionality, while often coincident with utility in conservative writing, is merely instrumental.

There is a table of contents with nested sections for each chapter. The key to the exercises (exercise answers) is in the fourth part

This is prosaic stuff, but absolutely essential for any wannabe writer. I writer, who can't place hi's commas, and apostrophes in the right place is like a carpenter who can't tell the difference between a chisel and a screwdriver.

For more fun with punctuation, I would recommend Lynn Truss's 'Eats Shoots & Leaves'. For a concise guide to (American) punctuation, there is nothing better than Strunk & White's 'The Elements of Style'. But is you just want the information without all the wit
