I think it's rubbish. Complete nonsense!!

Truss, Eats, Shoots & Leaves 3 -- Jerz: Intro to Literary Study (EL150)

This chapter covers alot of information for only thirty pages that were in the chapter. I really learned alot from reading these pages. They were very informational and very in depth.

"When I was about fourteen years old, a friend at school who spent the summer holidays in Michigan set me up with an American pen-pal. This is not an episode I am proud to remember." This was a very good "grabber" for me because I could relate to what she was saying. I too had a pen-pal and became very disgusted with her...

I never knew that grammar and punctuation could be described as "glamorous", "beautiful" and "graceful"; however, leave it Truss to define grammar and punctuation like this! "Is it endangered? What will we do if it disappears?" I was thinking about this when I read the first chapter. Grammar has left some people due to technology. What does the future look like?
