Read from January 15 to August 22, 2011

I'd have a more formed opinion if I hadn't been reading this since probably last November. It's done now, and it wasn't awful. Like a lot of books, I notice the typos creeping in toward the end. In this case just two or three in the whole book, but they're there nonetheless. My original theory was people would miss typos toward the end of the book as the plot takes over, but this is a lesson by lesson thing, there's honestly not what you'd call plot or momentum involved. So, looks like I need a more refined theory. That or a more basic theory - typos creep in toward the end of the book.

As to the actual book, I liked it fine, if you like prescriptive "do this" advice, it's got plenty of that, and if you read it while revising, the lessons also would apply pretty well.

--Brian.
