What's the best book you read this year?
The best thing about this book ( and its phenomenal sales record) was that it reassured me that I have kindred souls all over the world. There are people who care about grammar. My own writing (for example, this blog) is full of errors, both grammatical and syntactical, but thats besides the point. I CARE. When my eyes stray repeatedly to an errant apostrophe, I realize that I'm not alone, even if I do have a personality disorder. It feels a lot better.
The great feelings of harmony and peace aside, the book did answer some sticky questions about grammar that I forgot to ask about in school. Its not a handy reference, being written in a more-or-less loose style, but definitely a book that begs re-reading.
Read it, even if you don't buy it.
