A witty, entertaining, impassioned guide to perfect punctuation, for everyone who cares about precise writing. When social histories come to be written of the first decade of the 21st century, people will note a turning point in 2003 when declining standards of punctuation were reversed. Linguists will record Lynne Truss as the savior of the semi-colon and the avenging angel of the apostrophe. 'If Lynne Truss were Roman Catholic I'd nominate her for sainthood' - Frank McCourt. 'This book will stimulate and satisfy. It's worth its weight in gold' - Boyd Tonkin, "Independent". 'A witty, elegant and passionate book that should be on every writer's shelf' - "Observer". 'Lynne Truss deserves to be piled high with honours...' - John Humphrys. 'It can only be a matter of time before the new government seizes the chance to appoint her as minister for punctuation. The manifesto is already written' - "Guardian". 'She's a soul sister. She's one of us' - Richard Madeley, "Richard and Judy".Hide synopsis

A great piece of humour here and, yet, with a serious aim, this little book has become a runaway bestseller overnight and rightly, too.
As author Lynne Truss has explained, there are many people who have little idea of the basics of punctuation. This does not surprise me in the slightest. As ...
Pretty much what I had expected. The prose is a bit flighty, but the author is doubtless trying (and succeeding) to keep the reader from falling asleep in an otherwise dull subject.
Educational and worth reading.
I bought multiple copies of this book for students in a grantwriting class that I am teaching. It's an easy read, makes its points memorably, and is a fantastic resource. I recommend it highly!
