Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
More people write for the Associated Press than any other news institution on earth. To guide these journalists through the thickets of commas, semi-colons, and ampersands, the AP has devised this concise, clearly worded guide. Reliable and easy to use.
KLIATT
This is clear and concise, and as an editor I'm aware of how shaky most people's punctuation is. I personally go a little crazy around hyphens and was glad to read in this book that it still is forbidden to use a hyphen after an adverb that ends with "ly": e.g., don't put a hyphen in "amazingly-realistic work." (If you start looking, you'll see that this rule is frequently broken in publications.) This guide is a pleasure to read—I'm not joking. For instance, here is the beginning of the chapter on the semicolon. "The semicolon is a compromise. It drifts, somewhat nebulously, between the period and the comma. To be pedantic, the semicolon means a shorter pause than the period and a longer pause than the comma." I like that clarity! The chapter continues, "Long or short pause, good stylists try to avoid it as too formal; decked out, as it were, in a starched shirt and a black suit. You would do well to keep semicolons at a minimum. There usually are options." This is a short book that should be helpful to many writers (every student) because the punctuation rules are so clearly cited and explained. KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2003, Perseus, 96p.,
