Bryson's Dictionary for Writers and Editors
by (? are dictionaries "by" someone?) Bill Bryson.
Quickie Recap: Well, this is how a dictionary works: words are listed, usually alphabetically for easy references, and you can look them up to check their spelling or their meaning. Neat eh?
Quickie Review: Yes, I read a dictionary. Back off. It's Bryson. And it's not every word, just the ones I'm most likely to fuck up, you know, the icky plurals, tricky hyphens, kooky foreign stuff, that kind of thing.
Quickie Recommendation: At the risk of forever brandishing myself an incorrigible nerd, yes.
