Comma misuse is nothing to take lightly. It can lead to a train wreck like this:
Example: Mark Twain's book, Tom Sawyer, is a delight.
Because of the commas, that sentence states that Twain wrote only one book. In fact, he wrote more than two dozen of them.
Why is this sentence a trainwreck? What is the correct placement of commas to un-train-wreck it?
How about this?
Mark Twain's second book, Tom Sawyer, is a delight.
