"There are heroes and villains in this book. Oh, you never thought such could be possible? You never thought a book on punctuation could contain raw sex?"
Reading that part of the foreword made me very anxious to continue and get to the actual text. I know its juvenile of me to wonder how Truss is going to relate sex and villains to punctuation, but nevertheless it intrigued me. When first learning that this would be a book on punctuation I thought it would be rather dull and boring; however, from what I've read so far that hardly seems the case.
