5.0 out of 5 stars Cheerfully desperate, breezily curmudgeonly, January 17, 2006
This review is from: Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation (Hardcover)
This was a delightful, quick read. Lynne Truss takes on the tendency of email and other rapid-response technologies to send our written communications into a world of Joycean incoherence. It's a chatty thing, with lots of diversions and asides, such as the contributions of Aldo Manuzio to the wonderful world of typesetting and punctuation. This book makes a great gift for people who love books qua books and reading qua reading.

Truss have a very pleasant sense of play. For example, in a section dealing with particular punctuation rules, she loves to display those rules she's writing about within the selfsame section. Truss is clever and lively and charming. Bookworms, give it a try. You'll like it.
