"Authoritative as it is amusing, this book distills everything Benjamin Dreyer has learned from the hundreds of books he has copyedited, including works by Elizabeth Strout, E. L. Doctorow, and Frank Rich, into a useful guide not just for writers but for everyone who wants to put their best foot forward in writing prose. Dreyer offers lessons on the ins and outs of punctuation and grammar, including how to navigate the words he calls 'the confusables,' like tricky homophones; the myriad ways to use (and misuse) a comma; and how to recognize--though not necessarily do away with--the passive voice. (Hint: If you can plausibly add 'by zombies' to the end of a sentence, it's passive.) People are sharing their writing more than ever--on blogs, on Twitter--and this book lays out, clearly and comprehensibly, everything writers can do to keep readers focused on the real reason writers write: to communicate their ideas clearly and effectively. Chock-full of advice, insider wisdom, and fun facts on the rules (and nonrules) of the English language, this book will prove invaluable to everyone who wants to shore up their writing skills, mandatory for people who spend their time editing and shaping other people's prose, and--perhaps best of all--an utter treat for anyone who simply revels in language"--… (mehr)

This book is informative and amusing. Dreyer’s humor and clever footnotes take what should be a dry, dull text and transforms it into a highly entertaining read.

I highly recommend this for people who write. Which, really, most of us do to some extent. ( )

Very readable and enjoyable. Helped me correct some of my common mistakes. Because the bit on names was biased based on the subject matter of interest to the author, I think it would have been better to omit or include as an appendix. ( )

K; think it was very funny; read recently?

How does one review a book on English grammar? Not good. Not well. Not at all– if one is smart. If smart, one is. Bloody brilliant is 'Dreyer’s English.' Most importantly, it is invaluable, worth its weight in Bitcoin, and easily digested. AND...funny, clever, wicked, and cheeky. Love it. ( )

K. I think this is the good one.
