Reviews
"Lighthearted and funny . . . It's like Strunk and White combined with S. J. Perelman--none of whom would have had the slightest objection." --The New York Times Book Review

"Possibly the most popular book on grammar ever published." --Writers.com

"Extraordinary . . . I'm keeping this book by my keyboard." --The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Invigorating and entertaining . . . As vital as a dictionary for those who wish to be taken seriously in speech, in print, or on Facebook." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A nifty guidebook to modern grammar that affectionately elbows the reader on every page." --San Francisco Chronicle
