Eats, Shoots & Leaves
Eats, Shoots & Leaves The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation By Truss, Lynne Book - 2004

If we had a dollar for every grammatical error we see daily, we would be rich, rich! But unfortunately, my plan for a system of language abuse fines went nowhere.* However, Lynne Truss's little book is here to set us straight. More a diatribe than an instructional book (Strunk & White's Elements of Style still sets the standard -- and is available online), Truss explains not only what is correct, but also why it matters to get it right. *One error I would fine for is mixing up "it's" and "its". I am probably preaching to the choir here, but "it's" is short for "it is". And like "yours", "its" is possessive, and means "belonging to it". No need to stick in an apostrophe. Got it? Because no one believes excuses about your autocorrect messing that up.
