Very enjoyable. This book was very well written and fun to read. The author takes on grammar grouches and discusses the political dimensions of the language wars. It is filled with many fun factoids and provokes deep thinking about language and how it tends to create its own rules. Reading it made me pay close attention to everything I said and heard for days. It probably helps to agree with the author's point of view!
