it was amazing

A discerning look at the way we use punctuation! As a former graduate student in Linguistics, I think Truss has done an absolutely thorough job of identifying the quirks that exist in our printed and spoken society, though I am sure many would not appreciate unknown errors in their own use of language being pointed out to them!! However, if read with an open mind, this book might also be used as a reference after you pick yourself up off the floor from rolling with laughter!
She has also written elementary-school versions of these books that I have used with my students.
