Endangered Species

This book was dedicated “to the memory of the striking Bolshevik printers of St. Petersburg who, in 1905, demanded to be paid the same rate for punctuation marks as for letters, and thereby directly precipitated the first Russian Revolution”.
The title comes from a joke about a panda and is supposed to be funny yet informative.
However many critics have pointed out that, although it’s a book-length rant about falling standards of punctuation, it itself contains numerous punctuation errors.
Which book?
