This little book is a good checklist for beginning writers. It contains a number of very useful links to additional resources. Unfortunately, it is lacking depth in many chapters leaving the need to research further with other books. The author stresses the importance of careful editing. While he is absolutely right on this, he chooses to neglect this all important task for himself. You will find a typo on almost every page, mostly of the type that a spellchecker does not catch, like "an" instead of "and".
