From the sarcastic to the suggestive, here are quotation marks as we love them best, doing horrible damage to the English language. Who wouldn't have second thoughts about ordering the "hamburger" on the diner's menu? Would it be best to skip the "blowout" sale at the department store? What hidden price must be paid for something marked "free"? Assembled by the creator of the wildly popular "Blog" of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks, this book surveys the havoc wreaked by quotation marks on signs, menus, placards, and posters that leave reality upended by supposed "facts." This smarty-pants guide is "perfect" for desperate grammarians, habitual air quoters, and anyone who appreciates a good laugh.

I chose this book as a gift for my extremely humorous English teacher. He loved it. I would like to note, it is definitely not JUST for the grammar nut in your life. The captions by the author are so sarcastic and hilarious it really makes the pictures that are featured even funnier. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good laugh that takes some imagination.
