I couldn't finish this one. The author's voice is so pompous and belittling that it makes even the useful parts (which were very few for me) almost unreadable. Most of this book relates specifically to newspaper editing, which is not really helpful for the type of editing I do.

The information and techniques described are very outdated. The few useful nuggets I could have gotten out of this book were covered in convoluted prose and sprinkled with sour self-righteousness. It's great that the author has had a long career as a copy editor, but her dinosaur perspectives do nothing for people editing in the real world today.… (mere)
