Portland attorney and avid reader Gilion Dumas, whose blog goes by the name Rose City Reader, gives a nod to Word Up! in her “Mailbox Monday” review. Dumas writes,
I am a grammar geek and love all kinds of “how to write well” books, from The Elements of Style to The Harvard Blue Book (that one dates me!) to Eats, Shoots and Leaves. I read them cover to cover, like novels. [Word Up!] is particularly good—livelier than most, but with plenty of substance.
