Write It Right - The Ground Rules For Self-Editing
Like the Pros by Dawn Josephson and Lauren Hidden is a perfect resource book for those who have difficulty editing and deciding where to even begin the process.
The authors make it very clear that editing belongs not just in the publishing world, but also in the corporate world. Proper editing certainly reflects one's image, after all.
The appendixes located at the end of the book are extremely helpful. I found the appendix dealing with common grammar misjudgments quite useful. This appendix alone warrants keeping Write it Right as a permanent part of my writer's resource bookshelf! I give this book the highest of ratings!
