Has anyone here read it?
Part of the review by Publishers Weekly says "Readers intimidated by style manuals and Lynne Truss will enjoy this populist grammar reference." Intimidated by Lynne Truss? How populist can you go? (Or how dumb can you go down?)
Build a man a fire and he's warm for a day. Set a man on fire and he's warm for the rest of his life.
I haven't read it, but now you've brought it to my attention I'll keep an eye out for it !
Maybe there should be some commas in the sentence.
Readers intimidated by style manuals, and Lynne Truss, will enjoy this populist grammar reference.

The publisher's comments include mention of "suicidal pandas...". I don't think the publisher read Lynn Truss very closely.
Maybe a suicidal panderer? Oops, in Eats, Shoots and Leaves Truss disparages emoticons. Wellllll, tough! One can't see my expression when I write, and I'm not of her calibre when it comes to expressing myself, so the emotican stays.
