Small criticism: Jean, French, is pronounced John. Read the 1st book, then you'll know how to pronounce the names for the second.

Between You & Me features Norris' laugh-out-loud descriptions of some of the most common and vexing problems in spelling, punctuation, and usage - comma faults, danglers, "who" vs. "whom", "that" vs. "which", compound words, gender-neutral language - and her clear explanations of how to handle them.

I just couldn't get into this book. I barely started it and never finished it. Perhaps I was mistaken when I first thought I would enjoy it.

This isn’t your grandmother’s book on meditation. It’s about integrating that “spiritual practice” thing into a life that includes beer, sex, and a boss who doesn’t understand you. It’s about making a difference in yourself and making a difference in your world - whether you’ve got everything figured out yet or not.

I guess this book was not what I thought is was going to be. I couldn't get interested in it. Barely started, never finished
