One of my favorite puncuation handbooks. 3 April 2007
By magictraveler - Published on Amazon.com
Although it is so cleverly writen and fun to read that you can get lost in the fun and forget what you were researching and fall back on your good old Strunk & White's.

The only problem is the title. "Well tempered" is not a compound word (adjective), and should NOT be hyphenated. "Well", although it precedes "tempered", is not an adjective in this case, but rather, an ADVERB modifying the ADJECTIVE "tempered".

A small thing, to be sure, but a bit of an annoyance to writers consulting a handbook by a seasoned, educated professional.
