Wayne Booth, author of The Rhetoric of Fiction, said it best:

"Quinn has managed to do what I would have thought impossible: turned a discussion of dozens of rhetorical figures—hyperbaton, hendiadys, isolcolon— into a book that is a delight to read—and a living refutation of most current rules of style. Offering examples that range from the Bible through Shakespeare and James Joyce to Joe Jacobs, he quietly and wittily demonstrates that—but why should I, by giving away his show, commit hysteronprotoron?"
(cited from the cover of Figures of Speech)
