"Excellent. Garner extends the reach of the prescriptive Fowler and the descriptive Merriam-Webster."--William Safire, The New York Times
"The most succinct and sensible advice on American usage to come down the pike in a long while."--The San Diego Union-Tribune
"Although Garner's manual is full and learned, his entries are quick and get to the point, easy to understand and nicely cross-referenced. He is also fun to read. A number of good books on usage have come out over the years, but Ive been unable to say of any of them, 'This is the one'--until now."--Austin American-Statesman (Texas)
"More consistently entertaining and approachable than the more formal Merriam Webster and New Fowler's."--The Baltimore Sun
"A superlative book."--Arizona Republic
