a quick grammar guide

Cupples_big-115x150 Templesmith_big-115x150Deborah Cupples and Margaret Temple-Smith, both legal writing professors at the University of Florida, have published a handy and dandy small book, Grammar, Punctuation & Style: A Quick Guide for Lawyers and Other Writers. You could literally fit in your purse or a large pocket, yet it provides a full review of American English grammar and punctuation and also includes style tips for lawyers. The authors practice what they preach, creating highly precise and concise prose. And the excellent typography adds to the legibility of this slim volume. (No  grammar maven will agree with every point in such a guide, but I found only three to disagree with, a personal minimum record.) It's a good guide to keep handy and to recommend for students.
