Eats Shoots & Leaves
Saturday, July 24, 2004
Last night I finished reading Eats Shoots & Leaves, "The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation," a humorous romp through the full stop, the round bracket, and their punctuation pals: they make the written word understandable. "Full stop" is what Brits call a period; "round brackets" are parentheses. I hope you're noticing the tricky punctuation in this post -- the book is chock-full of this sort of nonsense.

Don't get me wrong; I thoroughly enjoy the author's wit, which is considerable. And I feel okay starting a sentence with and. But I fear this one's going to fade from memory: I didn't highlight a single sentence.

There seem to be a lot of Eats, Shoots & Leaves readers who ate, shot and left in a hurry. It seems this one hit bestseller list by virtue of a cute cover and a fun title.
