Product Description

Commas are confusing. Unlike other types of punctuation, they are used in many ways. If you want to write clearly and professionally, you need to use commas correctly. Zen Comma will show you how.

Zen Comma uses examples, instructions, and anecdotes to teach you the 14 major uses for commas and the most common errors. It also contains exercises to help pinpoint the comma rules you need to learn. 

Each chapter begins with correct examples, explains the rules for correct usage, covers common errors, and discusses special considerations so you can use commas correctly, intelligently, and conscientiously.

The various koans interspersed throughout the chapters are intended to help you “meditate” on comma concepts. When you understand these koans, you will be able to apply their concepts to your own writing.
