The Book of ‘Unnecessary’ Quotation Marks ($12) takes your from the suggestive to the sarcastic, and shows you quotation marks doing what we love them to do best; wreaking havoc on the English language. Who would have second thoughts about ordering that “hamburger” on the menu at the diner or wondering what the hidden price is for that item advertised as being “free”? From the creator of the hugely popular “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks “blog”, this book surveys the havoc caused by those stupid quotation marks on menus, signs, posters, placards and leave reality suspended by those supposed “facts”. This is a smarty-pants guide, made no mistake about that, and is perfect for those who habitually “air quote”, grammar police or anyone who just wants a darned good laugh.
