Do Commas Matter?
Consider the story about my friends were heir to Uncle Josef's estate. Well, Josef wasn't really anyone's uncle, but that's what everyone called him.
Uncle Josef's Last Will and testament read, "I leave my entire estate to my dear friends Robert, Rosie, Charley and Sophie."
The problem? Robert and Rosie filed a lawsuit staring that Charley and Sophie together were due a third of Uncle Josef's estate.
Why? Uncle Josef hadn't placed a comma between Charley and Sophie.
The judge agreed. Anyone who ever know uncle Josef has been careful about their pauses ever since.
"At last! A book on punctuation that is not a mere reference book: rather, this book invites readers on a personal journey... meant to be read cover-to-cover, this book effectively takes he mystery out of punctuation and provides practice on essential writing skills."
--Elisabeth Anderson, Writing Instructor, College of DuPage
"A straight-forward handbook that has been infinitely more useful than any handbook or workbook I've used in college."
--Dominie Schiralli, Fine Arts Major, Indiana University Northwest
"Students who used this method had a much easier time with composition. Because they understood grammar and mechanics, they could focus on building their writing skills. This is a great method producing fantastic results."
--Peggy Patlan, Former Director of Education, Fox College
"The Mechanics of Writing is a manual of basic rules that actually builds writing skills, and my composition students who have used the unique method this book presents sing its praises!"
--Erika Mikkall, Writing Instructor, Indiana University Northwest
