In 2002, Lynne Truss presented
Cutting a Dash, a well-received BBC Radio 4 series about punctuation, which led to the writing of the UK number-one best seller
Eats, Shoots & Leaves. Presented here for the first time in America is the original landmark BBC Radio 4 program in its entirety.
Through sloppy usage and low standards on the Internet, in e-mail, and now "txt msgs", we have made proper punctuation an endangered species. In Eats, Shoots & Leaves, former editor Lynne Truss dares to say, in her delightfully urbane, witty, and very English way, that it is time to look at our commas and semicolons and see them as the wonderful and necessary things they are.
