Book Review

This is by far the wittiest and most exciting book about punctuation that we have ever seen. Indeed, it could well be described as a real laugh-a-minute page-turner. Lynne truss is a writer and broadcaster with a passion for punctuation pedantry. Does the hair stand up on the back of your neck when you see signs for "Banana's" or "Video's"? Do you feel like screaming when you see notices like "Giant Kid's Playground", or laugh to yourself at "Mind You're Head" warnings? If so, you are not alone. You share this frustration with Truss, and the legions of sympathisers flocking to buy her book. This light-hearted look at the history and use of punctuation is sure to be enjoyed by all. (British Edition.)
