I was quite impressed with this guide It draws on themes and guidelines present in complex guides and condenses it, relating it in a basic form, unlike this review, so that readers can understand the basic things to look out for when editing It includes such things as spelling, grammar, punctuation, things to look out for, and how to format on Word to make editing some pesky parts of punctuation easier.As somebody familiar with formatting and with some of the rules in this guide, it came across as a lightweight guide that is useful as a companion for those who need to dip into editing fiction for the occasional project In other words, I was looking for something detailed.However, it s an easy to understand guide with a friendly tone and I did learn a few tricks and useful ways to remember old rules.
