Generous tips! Engaging delivery!

This guide is sure to please! It wins on so many levels. The tips are generous, clear, and engaging -- chock full of line by line examples of what to do, what not to do, and why! The narrators are perfectly collaborative, and the writing is often funny. Highly recommended! Eleven stars!

Hilarious and a Fun Easy Listen

This audio book is fantastic! I was nervous, of course, about trying to learn about editing through audio without my eyes seeing the pages and examples, but I do believe that the format of this audio made it even easier than reading! There are two voices to help separate lesson from example, and the second voice uses strong vocal inclinations and cues to really carry across the use of grammatical and syntactical differences in writing. I found myself smiling and laughing out loud, and walked an extra couple miles just so I could continue listening. It was a very fun book, and I plan to listen to it again and again until I have a better grasp on its lessons. Highly recommended.

Would be Good if Edited for Audio Format.

The book has some good material, but long comparisons and examples "IS - SHOULD BE" are absolutely not for the audio format. If not for the last two chapters, summarising the tips and techniques I would give just one star. The hard copy, in contrast, might be interesting aid material for the writer.
