All writers know you can’t have too many books on the craft, whether for practical details of usage and vocabulary, for inspiration in mid-sentence, or for sheer companionship in a lonely endeavor. Pinker, the distinguished cognitive scientist and author of many works on the mind and language, is also chair of the Usage Panel of the American Heritage Dictionary, and his new book covers rules, clichés, coherence, revision, and more.
