Misspelled words, incorrect apostrophe usage, improper grammarThe Great Typo Hunt: Two Friends Changing the World, One Correction at a Time is the story of two friends traveling across the country, armed only with Sharpie pens, Wite-Out, dry erase markers, and keen eyes.
"Incensed by a 'no tresspassing' sign, Jeff Deck launched a cross-country trip to right grammatical wrongs.

He enlisted a friend, Benjamin D. Herson, and together they got to work erasing errant quotation marks, rectifying misspellings and cutting unnecessary possessive apostrophes.

The Great Typo Hunt is the story of their crusade.

In 2 1/2 months, Herson and Deck traveled the perimeter of the country, exploring towns and cities in search of typos. They found 437 typos, and were able to correct more than half of them."
