In the case of this little reference book (just the size of a paperback novel) you'll discover it's easy to lookup your question in the index and then quickly find the information you need. They layout and font face that was used makes this guide read almost like a dictionary. In other words, it is designed for reading short sections and presents the grammar rules in a lean format that is perfect.
This book shares space on my desk with my Oxford Dictionary of Current English:

And also my beloved copy of the 11th Merriam-Webster's Collegiate dictionary:
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary
And as noted above... for the price you'll pay, the Merriam-Webster's guide is more than good value for your money.
A few years ago, I spent several months in Paris; and while there, I was asked to write a couple of articles destined for American publication. Not having any reference books with me at the time, I count myself lucky for having stumbled across a copy of the "Merriam-Webster's Guide to Punctuation and Style" in a local anglophone bookshop. It really saved my skin, turning what could have been a pair of disasters into two very pleasant tasks.
