Dreyer's English: An Utterly Correct Guide to Clarity and Style

Fun. If you’re a regular reader who loves words you should experience delight as you read Benjamin Dreyer’s witty, sharp and experienced judgments in his book titled, Dreyer’s English: An Utterly Correct Guide to Clarity and Style. If you’ve ever wondered what different editors do, this book will explain their work for you. Dreyer’s writing is playful, clear and reflects a clear understanding of our foibles. The footnotes can be a bit distracting, often because I kept overlooking the marks that would send me to the bottom of the page. The content of the footnotes and text were a joy to read, and whether my usage of the English language will improve as a result of reading this book, only time will tell.
