There's a class of books, such as Lynne Truss's "Eats, Shoots and Leaves", which brings a light-hearted touch to correctness. This is another example: the author examines a range of common but erroneous beliefs, and states the truth behind them. I won't say I was actually surprised by many of them: the one I did disagree with is one where she's confused the effect of merely opening a bottle of wine ahead of time with that of decanting it. She seems to think the latter is as ineffective as the former.
Good for dipping into - and a good candidate for a guest room.
