Read full description of the books:



I'd like to share what is possibly the most erotic paragraph ever to discuss copyediting:

"An editor's only permanent alliance is with the audience, the readership. It is the editor's responsibility to hook that readership; to edify it, entertain it, stroke it, shake it up—do whatever necessary to keep the medium hot and desirable for the people who support it."

Hot and desirable. Exactly how I like my edits.

Most of the book's technical recommendations are way out of date, as it was published in the 1980s, but there are still nuggets of salient advice for those of us who make our living fixing other people's writing. Lent to me by my manager.
