Sorry I can't help you with the book you're looking for. I would like
to recommend a couple of books, though. They're both by Jan Venolia:
Write Right! ISBN 0-89815-260-7 (spiralbound)
Rewrite Right! ISBN 0-89815-202-X
These are two of my favorite reference tools. (I am so impressed with
Jan's writing style that I read her books cover-to-cover as soon as I
buy them. When I grow up, I want to write just like she does!)
