I read this for one of my graduate classes. I had seen this around Goodreads and it had been on my radar for a little while, so it seemed like a good choice for my individual picks for the class. The material was presented in an engaging and easily digestible format. There was also some humor throughout and the examples did a good job of highlighting what to avoid and what to do instead. It reminded me a little bit of The Elements of Style. It was fairly short but still managed to pack a decent amount in the book. I'd recommend especially for writers and editors.
