Let's face it. Compounds confound us. Are we to write words such as lifestyle (life-style?, life style?) and database (data-base?, data base?) as solid, hyphenated or open? That even dictionaries don't agree compounds the compound problem. "In One Word, Two Words, Hyphenated? Mary Louise Gilman offers straightforward, sensible and up-to-date help to the stylistically challenged. With authority and a leavening of humor, she turns a briar patch of compound words into a rational, manageable garden of delight. This book could become a bestseller (best-seller?, best seller?). -- Richard Lederer, author of Anguished English and More Anguished English coauthor of The Write Way

Anyone who writes, edits or prepares manuscripts ought to have this meticulously compiled book close at hand. It has saved me many a trip to the dictionary. -- Richard Dowis, President of the Society for the Preservation of English Language and Literature and coauthor of The Write Way
