    I'm a fan of Strunk's classic Elements of Style, personally.

    interesting and educational I do find some mistakes or exceptions to the rules;

    Ale; an alcoholic beverage, Ginger ale is not alcoholic.

    "New record"; rule avoid using. But there is one exception, if you speak of the old record and the new record in the same paragraph you might need to specify new record. I do agree with the rule genericly. You can't set an old record so "new" is unneeded.

    Amount and number is good, never knew that. So a pallet of bottled water could be a good amount of water or a large number of bottles of water.
