Shelves: reference
Even if the only thing you write is your family's annual Christmas letter to friends and relatives, you must have on your reference shelf either this book or one very much like it. Usage questions constantly arise and answers are quickly needed. Heavier tomes such as Garner's Modern American Usage are quite learned and offer much more involved discussions of the points under consideration; this book gives you good guidance with a minimum of commentary.
