'... excellent ...'. Neil Paterson, The Bookseller 'This is a monument to clarity and clear thinking: a master class in what is fast becoming a lost art ... no printer should be without this book. No publisher. No editor and certainly no self-publisher.' Writer's Forum 'It is described as a handbook for editors, copy-editors and proofreaders, and it ought to be in the reference section of your public library. It is one book I never lend.'
