With the use of many examples, and some amusing anecdotes, it also shows how, when used incorrectly, it can make one thing mean something entirely different!The book informs and reminds readers of the basic and thorny points of grammar and punctuation, while offering tips on style, vocabulary and literary flair for impressive communication.
