"In Write to the Point, accomplished author and literary critic Sam Leith kicks the age-old lists of dos and donts to the curb. Yes, he covers the nuts and bolts we need to be in complete command of the language: grammar, punctuation, parts of speech, and other subjects half-remembered from grade school. But more importantly, he charts a commonsense course between the zArmies of Correctnessy and the zDescriptivist Irregulars.y For Leith, knowing not just the rules but also how and when to ignore themdeveloping an ear for what works best in contextis everything. In this master class, Leith teaches us a skill of paramount importance in this smartphone age, when we all carry a keyboard in our pockets: to write clearly and persuasively for any purposeto write to the point." -- From Amazon.com summary.
