Eats, Shoots and Leaves

As an avid bookstore fan (I spend many lunch hours browsing the Coles’s close to my office) I’ve been wondering about the book called “Eats, Shoots and Leaves”. Turns out it’s a book on punctuation; and the correct or rather incorrect use of punctuation in current writing. In fact, it talks about the complete desecration of punctuation rules in modern writing. I’m intrigued that a book on grammer is the #1 best-seller right now, especially since I hated grammar in grade school.

There’s a very interesting article here, written in the form of an open letter to the author, explaining why punctuation is critical in technical literature, where a mistake in punctuation can lead to devastating results.
