Armed with our laptops and our PCs, we're the writing-est generation ever, cranking out e-mail, Web pages, and blogs, not to mention office memos, faxes, reports, newsletters, school papers, even memoirs and novels. But many of us were never taught how to write a sentence that makes sense, how to make sure our words do justice to our ideas. The result? Never have so many written so much so badly. O'Conner comes to the rescue with a practical and witty guide to the elements of good writing--From publisher description

A delightfully witty and informative book for fans of Patricia T. O'Conner's previous bestseller Woe Is I and other popular books on language, like Eats, Shoots & Leaves and The Elements of Style.

Not so fast--the answers may surprise you! In this fascinating book, the authors cover the whole nine yards (another source of lore!) and debunk myths that have bamboozled word-loving fans of their popular blog, books, and broadcasts. Prepare to change your mind about where words come from and where they're going. Yesterday's blooper could be tomorrow's bon mot.
