really liked it

The jokes (we punctuation sticklers are in this together!) wear a little thin after a while. Jokey anecdotes are, I guess, what is needed to get a large audience to voluntarily read a book that discusses the rise of ellipses and the fall of semi-colons in our day to day lives. Fairly informative, if shallow. The book was successful though in making me incredibly self-conscious about my own use of punctuation. ! ?,';: <>
