Grammar Books

A review in the Washington Post. I liked this bit:

For the most part, Lederer and Shore couple their clowning with good advice, as when they present a powerful case for the serial comma (that is, a comma inserted between the second-last and last items in a series -- which, I'm sorry to say, The Washington Post eschews). Someone once dedicated a book, they note, 'To my parents, the Pope and Mother Teresa.'
