This is the book you are looking for,
This review is from: Mind the Gaffe: The Penguin Guide to Common Errors in English (Paperback)
This is an excellent book. Writing forms a large part of my work and I refer to this book almost every day. I encourage others to do the same.
Anyone who yearns for plain English and despairs at pompous, officious writing will find the book a joy to read. The subtitle of this book `Common Errors in English' is a very accurate description of the contents. These errors are very common; so common are they that many came as a complete surprise to me. And I thought I knew my stuff.
Written in a wry style, this book should be on the desk of anyone who writes regularly. The page on split infinitives is worth the admission price, because never again will you worry about such nonsense.

What on earth is Amazon doing here? How can anyone confuse two such different names and book titles? Robert Trask is not David Trask, nor is Mind the Gaffe the same as Say what you mean! It is utterly incredible!
