A friend whose writing I admired and who acted as a first reader ("beta") for me recommended this specific book--she said it was her go to grammar. It's not as lively as Woe Is I or Eats, Shoots & Leaves, but it's a solid, succinct (168 pages) grammar on rules of correct English usage: punctuation, capitalization, parts of the sentence, often confused words, foreign words, numbers, signs and symbols, etc. ( )
