I had to ignore the blanket instructions regarding style guidelines (eg, always use serial comma, always space ellipses, etc.), because house styles differ. But it's never wrong to be exposed to the voice of another respected copyeditor. Read full review

User Review  - Helena - Goodreads

Recently switched from working in-house to freelance copyediting and proofreading. Picked this up from the library to see if it's worth adding to my reference shelf at home. After reading it, I'm still not sure...I may pick up a used copy at some point. Read full review
