  • Needs Copyediting AND Proofreading

    Oh, this book is wrong on so many levels. Where to even start! I've been a proofreader for decades and a copyeditor for a little less. No way can “55 easy edits” be all there is to copyediting. In fact, the author seems to confuse copyediting, line editing, proofreading, and even a little developmental editing. He puts them all under one big umbrella he calls “copyediting.” The book itself is oddly and awkwardly written, as if authored by someone for whom English is not their native language. The book is at times repetitive and contradictory. I agree with him about minimizing or eliminating the use of false subjects (there is/are/was/were) and impersonal passive expressions (“it” expressions when the “it” doesn’t refer to a specific noun), which he doesn't name as such, but then he himself uses them throughout the book. The book is littered with many errors of grammar, punctuation, and usage. He can't even spell Jane Austen, writing the city in Texas instead for her last name! I wouldn't trust a book on editing that breaks its own rules and has other errors. I don't suggest that you trust this book either. I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
