Without commas, a text becomes unreadable because it is tedious and because it will become confused to the point of irrationality. With too many, a text becomes stuttering and without all-important rhythm. A useful rule of thumb is that if you have two commas in a sentence and think you need to add a third, look carefully at removing one of the first two. If you feel you can’t think about converting one to a semi-colon or even colon. More about those in the future.
