If erroneous usage "literally" drives you up the wall--you'll enjoy this lively romp through the front lines of the language wars. Though a confessed grammar stickler, copy editor extraordinaire Bill Walsh notes "there's a fine line between snobbery and jerkitude." Walsh is willing to consider arguments from the apologist camp--those "descriptivist" linguists who accept all kinds of aberrations as part of the evolution of the English language--and sometimes he even sides with them (go ahead and use "hopefully" as a sentence adverb). With a wealth of keen insight delivered with dry wit and personal anecdotes, Yes, I Could Care Less is part practical style-guide/part passionate manifesto that's guaranteed to entertain language enthusiasts--especially the snobby sort.
