Description: No writer's or editor's desk is complete without a battered, page-bent copy of the AP Stylebook. However, this not-so-easy-to-use reference of journalistic style often is not up-to-date and leaves reporters and copyeditors unsatisfied. Bill Walsh, copy chief for the Washington Post's business desk, addresses these shortcomings in Lapsing into a Comma. In an opinionated, humorous, and yes, curmudgeonly, way, he shows how to apply the basic rules to unique, modern grammar issues. Walsh explains how to deal with perplexing situations such as trendy words, foreign terms, and Web speak.
-- Walsh has an established audience for his experience and knowledge -- his website, www.theslot.com, gets hundreds of requests for answers to today's style and language questions
-- A complementary reference to the AP Stylebook without its stuffiness
-- Includes a comprehensive index organized from A to Z
