That Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Means by Ross Petras and Kathryn Petras

In That Doesn’t Mean What You Think It Means, Ross and Kathryn Petras don’t just show writers how to avoid mistakes when working with the most commonly misused words in the English language: They also detail each word’s history and list examples of erroneous usage from newsletters, pop culture, and public figures.  The book’s compact size, clever format, and witty tone (not to mention its budget-friendly price tag) makes us think it’ll be an ideal stocking stuffer for any writer this Christmas.
