KIRKUS REVIEW

Close to the American scene and the man in the street, this covers a wide range of grammar, punctuation, idiom, and slang without going too far down the path of least resistance. In the main the authors are prejudiced in favor of literary forms and list the non-literary form as acceptable only if they have conclusive evidence that it is acceptable. Everyone will find special items of interest. Students of language and the considerable audience who follow The Last Word will assure its popularity.
