Read ¾ Dreyers English 108 A witty informative guide to writing good English from Random House's longtime copy chief and one of Twitter's leading enforcers of proper grammar a twenty first century Elements of Style As authoritative as it is amusing this book distills everything Benjamin Dreyer has learned from the hundreds of books he has copyedited including works by Elizabeth Strout E L Doctorow and Frank Rich into a useful guide not just for writers but for everyone who wants to put their best foot forw. As a copy editor myself and a big fan of Benjamin Dreyer s Twitter presence I was dying to get my hands on this book and it did not disappoint Not only is this book funny and fun to read it s so so helpful for anyone seeking to improve their writing or editing skills I ve been in this business for nearly 25 years and didn t think I d actually learn anything new from Dreyer s English but I was astonished to realize there were a few things I d been doing wrong all this time Maybe that doesn t sound too astonishing to you but I m pretty good what at what I do If Benjamin Dreyer can teach me a few things it s safe to say we can all learn something from him and he presents it all in a sensible lucid friendly rarely dogmatic wayI thought about deducting a star because I disagreed with Dreyer on a few things and also because reading a book on language usage all the way through as you d read a novel is bound to result in a few less than riveting moments But ultimately I decided neither of those criticisms was particularly fair An English language reference book that s both enjoyable and legitimately helpful is a rare thing indeed Let s all read it and reap the benefits of our improved ability to understand and communicate with one another
