Punctuation can make all the difference between a good piece of writing and a superb piece of writing. In "The Art of Punctuation", Noah Lukeman explores and demystifies each punctuation mark in turn. From the punchiness of the full stop to the unacknowledged flexibility of the question mark, the manifold powers of punctuation are revealed in this practical yet engaging guide.

Our reviewer said: 'Lukeman is writing as much about syntax as he is about punctuation, and has failed to notice that the punctuation acts to guide a reader’s understanding of how a sentence has been put together.'
