There are racks and racks of dictionaries in your local bookstore. This one takes a slightly different tack by introducing not only words but places, names, numerals, and rules of English - all focused on the writer and editor. The inside flap reads: "A wonderfully useful and readable guide to the problems of the English language most commonly encountered by writers and editors."
This brings order to the chaos of English. It tells you the difference between
imminent and immanent. It defines the subtleties between intense
and intensive and provides simple breakdowns for everything from adjective to verb.
This deserves a place on your reference shelf. It is meant to provide a quick and incisive guide to the problems of English spelling and usage for both writers and editors,
and it simplifies issues of style by breaking down the ultimate possibilities to a simple resolution: your choice.
