Word aficionados of all stripe should own and use this important resource. Far from banning "incorrect" words from the language, this book offers well-considered commentary on and creative solutions to sociolinguistic puzzles that concern every member of society--from the male-only draft to the cultural forces behind nonparallel terms like showman/showgirl. The opening essay is a powerful, must-read argument for good writing, which, in the words of Strunk and White, is "specific, definite, and concrete." My only request to the author for the next edition is that she continue to expand her cache of synonyms, update her discussion of sexuality in the media, and update her information on biological sex and gender.
