The best book on punctuation ever Oct 31, 2009
If you are one of those who is mystified by comma placement, Karen Elizabeth Gordon can straighten you out. In this book of 148 numbered pages, she devotes 37 pages (25 percent) to comma placement.
Gordon's instructions are clear, brilliantly written, and fun to read. The illustrations are clever, even kinky. All of it together is calculated to grab and hold your attention. You can't ask much more than that from a punctuation manual.
Over the years I found at least two minor questions that Gordon doesn't answer. But to tell the whole truth, I've forgotten what those questions were. Generally speaking, if you have questions about punctuation, all the answers are in 'The New Well-Tempered Sentence.'
This is one good book. It makes sense of punctuation and makes learning the sense of it fun.
