Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on 19 December 2020
Let's face it - most books about writing are not good reading. They are frequently dry, stuffy, and pedantic. Good reference material perhaps, but not enjoyable to read.

Terry Erle Clayton's book is different, as evidenced by my new favorite phrase from his book, "pushing mud through a hose."

His latest book tackles the critical process of editing, the unsung hero of writing good text. My favorite takeaway is the tip on using technology to read text aloud as part of proofreading. Although the book is mostly about upping one’s editing game, he also bravely enters the Oxford Comma Wars. (No spoilers here!)

This is such a practical, accessible resource I bought the extra copy for a young writer in my family. I only wish this book had been around long ago – it would have made writing my dissertation process less painful.
