summary Dreyers English

Dreyers English review á 103 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. If you think I am not the kind of person to read a style guide you are correct I do not read them for fun or pleasure and I try to avoid them even for professional growth But I knew this one would be different as I ve followed Dreyer on Twitter for several years and he also follows me full disclosure I had enough of a hunch that it would be a true delight that I even read the AUDIOBOOK Yes that is correct I read a style guide on audio And I loved itThe reason many of us hate style guides so much is that they always seem so invested in telling us everything we are doing wrong and never giving us a very good reason for it except that they said so But Dreyer is a real person living in the real world and he is happy to give you reasons Even better he s happy to bend the rules or at least tell you which ones are worth breaking If you are not a grammar person this is such a breath of fresh air I have honestly never heard anyone talk about style with this kind of realism or humor I didn t actually think you could before nowDreyer is wry and funny and I probably laughed in the first hour of this audiobook than I have ever laughed listening to any audiobook ever I also learned things It is not just a romp through the world of writing style and copyediting it is actually useful I do plan to get an actual hard copy to consult in the future it s so much friendly than the other style guides even though Dreyer encourages you to have a few others on hand sorry I do not want those mean old broads in my bookshelves The audio does lose a bit of its punch when you get to the listing of commonly mistaken words and other such miscellany but I still happily came back to it time and time again just for shorter stretches at the end I will happily add this to my list of Books Every Writer Should Own aka Books You Should Gift Your Writer Friends

Dreyers English review á 103 Ard in writing prose Dreyer offers lessons on the ins and outs of punctuation and grammar including how to navigate the words he calls the confusables like tricky homophones; the myriad ways to use and misuse a comma; and how to recognize though not necessarily do away with the passive voice Hint If you can plausibly add by zombies to the end of a sentence it's passive People are sharing their writing than ever on blogs on Twitter and this book lays out clearly and comprehensibly. I see that lots of people were really impressed with this book I wasn t Dreyer writes in a generally lively humorous manner but he is often verbose and the clarity promised in the subtitle is sometimes lacking As well he is at times noncommittal declining to weigh in clearly on some of the thornier grammar and usage issues An undue amount of time is spent on commonly misspelled proper nouns pertaining to the rich and famous Little than paddingI liked this book far less than I thought I would I appreciated some of Dreyer s points but I m inclined to stick with the style guides I currently use Dreyer s work is also somewhat problematic for Canadians We sometimes use British ways and other times AmericanIn addition there are lots of footnotes sometimes long ones very long ones WhyOh and did I mention he also likes to use lots of footnotes
