What We're Reading
Dreyer's English: An Utterly Correct Guide to Clarity and Style
The AP Stylebook may be the gold standard for most journalistic copyeditors, but Dreyer's English is a fun a read and a more laid-back alternative for those grammarians who don't mind a little traditional rule-bending. The new book by Benjamin Dreyer, copy chief for Random House, is climbing up the best-seller charts. It's a handy manual, a fun behind-the-scenes look at the book publishing industry, a breezy read, and a great addition to the bookshelf for people who work with words or just love the language.
