From the author of It Was the Best of Sentences, It Was the Worst of Sentences, this new reference from grammar columnist June Casagrande covers the basic rules of punctuation to offer clear answers to perplexing questions about semicolons, quotation marks, periods, apostrophes, and includes handy icons to show how punctuation rules differ for all styles, including AP (Associated Press), MLA (Modern Language Association), and Chicago Manual of Style.

This handbook features rulings from an expert “Punctuation Panel” so readers can see how working pros approach sticky situations. The second half of the book features an alphabetical master list of commonly punctuated terms, combining rulings from the major style guides and showing precisely where they differ.
