Eats, Shoots and Leaves

If you haven't seen the book, Eats, Shoots and Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation (, you're missing something great. It's a funny, savvy, and fascinating look at punctuation abuses and how to avoid them. Written by Brit Lynne Truss, the book explains the ins and outs of commas, semi-colons, and those greatly misunderstood apostrophes. Hysterically funny and dead-on correct, this is a must-read for authors and editors and especially for those who want to become one or the other.
