A couple of more books I have been reading, due to the good graces of the Los Angeles Public Library:
Eats, Shoots and Leaves by Lynn Truss:
Strangely enough, I think this book is a little too long, even if it is only 168 pages. I just wanted some simple rules on punctuating. I got those, but also received a lot of extraneous humor that wasn’t very informative.
Still, I will probably buy a copy for my collection.
Why We Make Mistakes: How We Look Without Seeing, Forget Things in Seconds, and Are All Pretty Sure We Are Way Above Average by Joseph T. Hallinan:
An informative book, it goes into a fair amount of detail on how human error occurs. Unfortunately, it doesn’t give a whole lot of useful information about preventing mistakes. A good read for background info, but not something I think I will reread.
