I finished, “Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation” on Friday and here is a quick review:
I have heard a lot of buzz about it around and being of an anal-retentive nature, I thought this book must be right up my alley. It was! (Although I think it makes my urges to nitpick much worse! “Does the comma go here? or here?” bah!)
Some of the examples that the author gives are quite inventive. I enjoyed this one in particular: “Tom has only one rule in life: never eat anything bigger than your head.” That one made me giggle.
It is not the type of book that you feel calling to you from the other room but it nice, quick read. I would recommend checking it out if you are the type of person who gets annoyed seeing a sign that says, “Mens Rooms.” eek.
