    EPUB ¸ MOBI The Elephants of StyleA Trunkload of Tips on the Big Issues and Gray Areas of Contemporary American English ä↠ BILL WALSH The Elephants of StyleA Trunkload of Tips on the Big Issues and Gray Areas of Contemporary American EnglishI'm only giving this book three stars because the humor of the author kept me reading Minus the occasional sacrilegious remark or profane comment this book was pretty decent with regard to style Only a few of the author's rules were points I discounted completely either for personal preference eg nixing the Oxford comma or disregard for the rules of standard English grammar eg theythem in reference to a singular subject Additionally the author seems pretty biased toward liberal ideology But then again the author writes for the Washington Post so I don't know why I expected a volume free of presuppositions I'm also not a fan of expletives and I don't lik
