4.0 étoiles sur 5 Comma Confusion 17 avril 2013
Par Arago - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a style book I can actually read and enjoy as well as a reference book for my writer's shelf. I am occasionally tempted to check it with other authorities, and find that it's factual, after all. I learn from the book every time I open it when I thought I was pretty good at this stuff. Thank you, Mr. Walsh, for adding to my store of references and my knowledge about my craft. By the way, I re-read this for errors, and removed two commas. I have an urge to put them back but I would only take them out again.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Useful and fun 2 mai 2004
Par Judgeman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Bill Walsh, the Washington Post's copy editor for national news, is an unabashed "prescriptivist" -- someone for whom, in writing, there are things that are wrong because they've always been wrong. "Even if you think it's arrogant to condemn a perfectly understandable bit of prose as 'wrong,'" he writes, "you have to answer one big question: Do you want to look stupid?"
With "The Elephants of Style" you'll reduce the chance of sounding stupid, increase the likelihood that your writing will have style -- or, as Walsh puts it, FLAIR! ELAN! PANACHE! -- and have a lot of fun. "The Elephants of Style" is the rare book about writing and style that you may (as I did) read from cover to cover for sheer pleasure -- like the pleasure of learning that "the New York train station is Grand Central Terminal," but "Grand Central Station remains the correct expression for mothers yelling at their kids about running in and out of the kitchen."
I'll admit it: I'm one of those lovers of English who has shelves full of books about writing and the use of our language. I regularly read Walsh's website "The Slot: A Spot for Copy Editors," and I also purchased his first book, "Lapsing Into a Comma," which also was a delight. "Lapsing" was aimed at an audience of more sophisticated word users or, as Walah says, was written for editors and writers. "Elephants of Style," he says, was written for writers and editors. It will benefit everyone, I say, from professional writers and editors to middle-school English students. I recommend it highly.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Digerati need not be illiterati 9 janvier 2013
Par Andrew Everett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The Internet and print-on-demand technology have enabled almost everyone to become a publisher. In traditional media, professional journalists and authors have their writing cleaned up by copy editors before it is published. The average blogger does not have this luxury. In Lapsing Into a Comma, Bill Walsh shares his advice on how to handle many common problems that he has encountered as copy editor of the business section at the Washington Post.

This book starts with nine chapters covering various grammatical issues followed by a stylebook with approximately 340 entries. Most publishers adopt a style guide such as the Associated Press Stylebook or the Chicago Manual of Style. Walsh frequently refers to the AP stylebook, but sometimes disagrees with it. Style is not about being a slave to fifth-grade grammar rules. It's about making informed choices and being consistent.

Language rules could be a very dull topic, but Walsh writes with a highly-opinionated attitude and a sense of humor, making the book more engaging than it otherwise would be. My favorite line in the book is: "Digerati need not be illiterati."

This book leaves no stone unturned when it comes to usage. It's a perfect companion for those who write for a living, for those who write a lot, and for those who care about their writing.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good if you want to be a journalist 19 janvier 2012
Par M. Akers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I was hoping for some more along the lines of Edwin Newman but the book does have quite a few nuggets of info if you aspire to see your own prose in print some day.
