William Safire, the author of the New York Times Magazine column "On Language," hones in on the essential misrules of grammar, those mistakes that call attention to the major rules and regulations of writing. He tells you the correct way to write and then tells you when it is all right to break the rules. Each mini-chapter starts by stating a misrule and then Safire follows up with solid and entertaining advice on language, grammar, and life. He covers a vast territory from capitalization, split infinitives, run-on sentences, double negatives, dangling participles, and even onomatopoeia.
