Still clinging to your dog-eared dictionary? So attached to The Elements of Style that you named your rabbits Strunk and White? Maybe youa€™re a beleaguered reporter, or a type-A newspaper reader who unwinds by e-mailing the editor about whether a€œtweeta€ is a verb? Ita€™s time to face up to reality: Writing clearly, checking facts, and correcting typos are dying arts. Whether youa€™re a jaded producer of media or a nitpicking consumer of it, this book will help you to embrace, not resist, the lowering of standards for the written word!

And much, much, more!
