“Through sloppy usage and low standards on the internet, in email, and now text messages, we have made proper punctuation an endangered species. In Eats, Shoots & Leaves , former editor Lynne Truss dares to say, in her delightfully urbane, witty, and very English way, that it is time to look at our commas and semicolons and see them as the wonderful and necessary things they are.” –A perfect description from the publisher of this fabulous little book whose subtitle says it all, A ZERO TOLERANCE APPROACH TO PUNCTUATION. šŸ™‚
