Reviews

"Ridiculously useful. The best book on punctuation I've ever seen."
-Mignon Fogarty, author of Grammar Girl's Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing

"Invaluable reference work for professional proofreaders, editors, and writers because it is the only book that presents Chicago, AP, APA, and MLA conventions side by side. (Acronym-free translation: for each use of each punctuation mark, this book clearly explains and illustrates the practices used by book publishers, the news media, social science publications, and nonscientific academic papers and journal articles.)"
-Amy Einsohn, author of The Copyeditor's Handbook
