Well, not really. Eats, Shoots & Leaves is only about pandas in that there’s one on the cover and involved in the joke that is the title. It’s really just a concise, funny, and detailed look at the effect punctuation has on the English language. The humor of it is probably more satisfying if you’re one of those people (like me) who cringes when you see a sign in the grocery store that says “Sale: Apple’s”, but everyone will find something to giggle at and something to learn from this book. Check it out — if you’re a college student, and read this one, you’ll find a lot less red pen on your papers. And if you’re a professor, you might find more places to put that red pen.
