A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. When William Safire makes a mistake, it's a beaut. When the most widely rea d language maven of the English language sets out to make fifty mistakes, i t's a book -- a funny, self-mocking, and witty guide to good grammar and st yle. Don't use no double negative. Verbs has to agree with their subjects. Never use a long word when a diminutive one will do. For generations students an d teachers have been passing around these hard-to-forget, easy-to-understan d "fumblerules." Here is the world's largest and most instructive collectio n (I've told you a thousand times, resist hyperbole), each one followed by a lighthearted essay that recovers the fumblerule. No wishy-washy advice here. (no sentence fragments.) This opinionated New York Times curmudgeon give you The Word on words in a voice of authority. Safire is as final an arbiter of good usage as anyone can find. And he is as entertaining as he is informative. (And don't start a sentence with a conjunction.)
