really liked it

A writer's guidebook that uses testicular torsion as an example of specific description has balls. Apologies to Ms Casagrande for the poor metaphor - the book is clearly good enough to make me self conscious.

It Was the Best of Sentences, It Was the Work of Sentences has three things that every sentence-writing guide needs:
- an upfront statement of the author's stylistic prejudices,
- frequent acknowledgements that every rule can be broken in the service good writing, and
- a killer description of the restrictive clause.
