Written with laugh-out-loud, dry, British humour (with a u), Eats, Shoots & Leaves received the top spot on the New York Times Bestseller list. Readers who notice (and are bothered by) misplaced apostrophes, commas and obsessively placed semicolons, will adore author Lynee Truss' handling of matter. With ample examples of the dissolute state of punctuation usage in England and the U.S., this is a fun book to reassure yourself of your correct grammar usage, or even learn a rule or two! 209 pages, softcover.
Eats, Shoots & Leaves "makes correct usage so cool that you have to admire Ms. Truss."
Janet Maslin, The New York Times
"Witty, smart, passionate."
Los Angeles Times Book Review, Best Books Of 2004: Nonfiction
"This book changed my life in small, perfect ways like learning how to make better coffee or fold an omelet. Its the perfect gift for anyone who cares about grammar and a gentle introduction for those who dont care enough."
The Boston Sunday Globe
