Eats, Shoots and Leaves

Truss is pessimistic about the state of punctuation, but perhaps she’s been more exposed to silly prose than I have. While this is an often humorous book, I personally did not find much that I don’t already know, and therefore there were entire sections that were tedious. As with many  bestsellers, the hype runs away with the reputation, which then disappoints.
