"A light hearted guide to grammar and good usage" describes this collection of "fumberules": mistakes that call attention to the rules. New York Times columnist, William Safire, known as a witty but opinionated stickler for correctness,gives us 140 pages of compelling instruction. Good companion to "Anguished English" by Richard Lederer.
