I haven't laughed this much or this hard in a long time! I'm really enjoying this book and find myself agreeing with the author more then I'd ever thought likely. I've never considered myself a stickler for grammar but...I agree with much of what Truss discusses in this book. I love semicolons and probably use them far too much. Apostrophes are extremely necessary and should in no way be lost.
And yes, I'm fast to falling in love with Aldus Manutius the Elder; his creations are what make books readable and author's thoughts understandable.
