Green-Eyed Monster

If you must buy that book (you know what I'm talking about), at least use this link, which will get me a few pennies of kickback.

It's not much of an instruction book, especially if you deal in American English, but it is entertaining as a rant. But there have been better rants over the past half a decade or so.

A D.C.-Area Note

Soon it will be hard to find an unsigned Bill Walsh book in the Washington area. In the closest thing to a book tour that I'm likely to get, I drove around the area, mostly in Northern Virginia, and volunteered to sign books. To my relief, "The Elephants of Style" was available everywhere I looked, sometimes in large quantities. The bookstore managers were uniformly thrilled to have all copies on hand signed. So, for those of you in the area, you can now get autographed copies at:

  • Barnes and Noble, 12th and E streets NW, downtown Washington. (Autographed copies of "Lapsing Into a Comma" also available.).
  • Barnes and Noble, Potomac Yard, Alexandria. (Autographed copies of "Lapsing Into a Comma" also available.)
  • Borders, Baileys Crossroads.
  • Borders, 18th and K streets NW, downtown Washington.
  • Borders, Pentagon Center, Arlington.
  • Borders, Tysons Corner.
  • Olsson's, Old Town Alexandria.
  • Olsson's, Reagan National Airport, Arlington.
  • Trover Shop, Capitol Hill.
