On Exclamation Marks

From Wayne Curtis' review (unfortunately not online) of Jennifer Michael Hecht's The Happiness Myth: Why What We Think Is Right Is Wrong in the Spring issue of The American Scholar:
"... Hecht is fond of exclamation marks, which she deploys like a bottom-pinching uncle who doesn't know when to stop."

Just made me laugh.
