Vex, Hex, Smash, Smooch: Let Verbs Power Your Writing - Constance Hale Review to come. I took so many notes while reading this book that it took me quite a while to get through. It was worth the time taken though. I think this book was good in a more specific way with verb use, whereas "Sin and Syntax" dealt with all parts of a sentence. Still, this book delved into the history of the English language and showed many examples where rules were made to be broken and when they weren't. I thought it was a very valuable resource, and would certainly add it to my writing library.
