KIRKUS REVIEW

An essential desk book -- a must book for reference shelves -- a book that catches the slack which modern methods of omitting to teach rhetoric and grammar seems to make inevitable. Not only a constructive analysis of the weak spots in the armor of everyone, but a careful study of punctuation and the essential rules, of usage and misuse of such stumbling blocks as ""may"" and ""can"" -- ""lie"" and ""lay"" -- but a brief dictionary of commonly mispronounced words. Fascinating -- and appalling.

Publisher: Putnam -- Minton, Balch
