Truss, "Eats, Shoots and Leaves"

"The consequences of mispunctuation (and re-punctuation) have appealed to both great and little minds"

I think this quote is a good example of Truss's tone throughout the section. She's uses a sort of sarcastic and condescending humour. She also seems sort of cynical about other people's interest in punctuation even though it seems to be a passion of hers.
