Reviews - What do customers think about Merriam-Webster's Guide to Punctuation and Style?

Another good M-W Family Member  Jan 26, 2009
All you want/need to know about punctuation is here. Plus a lot more.

MERRIAM-WEBSTER is THE publisher for American English reference books.
Add this volume to several others and you have decent "library" in paperback, at low prices.
A bargain for such a useful tool  Jun 9, 2007
For the price you'll pay for this book you can hardly afford not to have it by your side when writing, editing or proofreading. I use it for all three of the aforementioned tasks. While your computer may be constantly connected to the internet, sometimes it's just easier to pick up an actual reference book and find the answer you need.

In the case of this little reference book (just the size of a paperback novel) you'll discover it's easy to lookup your question in the index and then quickly find the information you need. They layout and font face that was used makes this guide read almost like a dictionary. In other words, it is designed for reading short sections and presents the grammar rules in a lean format that is perfect.

This book shares space on my desk with my Oxford Dictionary of Current English:

Oxford Dictionary of Current English

And also my beloved copy of the 11th Merriam-Webster's Collegiate dictionary:

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary

And as noted above... for the price you'll pay, the Merriam-Webster's guide is more than good value for your money.
arm floaties not a life raft  May 17, 2007
The guide is helpful for basic grammer needs. Essentially, it will help you stay afloat if you have the periodic question or need a refresher, but it wont save you if you are completely lost in terms of grammer rules. It doesn't offer enough examples to fully explain the grammar rules, and sometimes is ambiguious (i.e usually you do "x", but it is also okay to "y" or "z").
Tightly packed like a book on commas and semicolons and more should be!  Jul 20, 2006
The complexity of the subject(s) makes for a bit of confusion, but it is all in here. My copy is already dog-eared after only a couple of days in my possession and pretty constant use. It is much easier to use than the huge volumes of similar advice that once stood on their own tables at the local library. Already I have bookmarks throughout it.
Excellent  Aug 18, 2005
This is an excellent book for those who are seeking a quick and efficient guide to punctuation.
