Substance & Style: Instruction and Practice in Copyediting

4.09 of 5 stars 4.09  ·  rating details  ·  11 ratings  ·  1 review
Stoughton not only demonstrates the "how" aspect of good editing but answers the questions "why" these rules apply. This book inspires, clarifies, nurtures and teaches, painlessly. It provides mental tools that are easy -- and dare I say it? -- fun to use to improve your writing and editing.

Rigorous editing practice. Perfect for curling up with next to a roaring fire, except that you might be tempted to hurl it into the flames.
