A Brief History of English Usage and a quick-reference guide to Pronunciation Symbols provide background and supplementary data.

I would recommend this book to anyone who does a lot of writing.

It has excellent, well-researched advice on the proper usage of a number of English words and phrases.

It is very "descriptivist" -- that is, rather than simply deferring to an expert's opinion, the researchers actually search through numerous archives of English literature, journalism, etc, as well as other usage guides to formulate their recommendations.

How could I not love a book that answers my most burning usage questions and also helps me win arguments?

Objective and comprehensive, Merriam-Webster's Dictionary of English Usage is a readable and entertaining guide to the complext history of some of the thorniest usage issues in the English language.
