(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:49:35 -0400)
"...A personal collection, built up over thirty years as a writer and editor in two countries" and "intended as a quick, concise guide to the problems of English spelling and usage." First published in the 1980s, Bryson's compilation has been updated and re-released, and includes definitions, guides to punctuation and grammar, and helpful conversion tables (Celsius to Fahrenheit; kilometers to miles). In short, it's equal parts The Elements of Style, Associated Press Stylebook, Webster's New World Dictionary, and general desktop encyclopedia.--From publisher description.
