Overview
True to the name of the Thorough Primer Series for Writers, Punctuation for Writers is a concise, thorough, one-two punch. The first section explains the rules of punctuation, including how to break those rules intentionally to achieve a particular effect. In the second section, Stanbrough puts punctuation in perspective with a brief but thorough and witty grammar refresher.
