A classic

Although there are one or two (only one or two) points on which we differ, Garner and I are on the same page. If you're writing in modern English, this is a book you need, especially if you want to avoid sounding like a teenager, sending a text message to his hamster. You'll learn when to use further or farther, compose or comprise, and (if you don't already know) its or it's. Those are things you need to know.
