If you liked "Eats, Shoots and Leaves" you'll probably like this. The book gives you exactly what you expect from the cover. Some of the typos are funny and some are just poor choices of words or bad transcriptions or translations and some are clearly intentional.

The only section I didn't like was the phone autocorrect section. I get that it's in vogue now to make fun of phone autocorrect, but I really hoped this was a typesetting book. If they were going to do the autocorrect thing, they should have at least used some more original ones, especially since some of these are made up.

My other complaint is that you would have be well read to get a few of these typos. Some of them are just misworded prose or titles. If you didn't know the actual prose, you would probably be at a loss. That being said, most people who are grammar geeks will also probably be well read.

Overall, it's a fun book. It's not quite as fun as "Eats, Shoots and Leaves" but it is good for a few laughs.
