平均5.0 星 Dense, but very useful 2013年2月18日
评论者 Amazon Customer - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 平装 已确认购买
Thanks to this book, I have pruned my convoluted writing style down to simple, understandable prose. I recommend it to anyone who writes copy of any kind--from novelists and academics to secretaries and casual bloggers.

One word of warning: Cook goes heavy on the jargon. Even expert grammarians would find some sections dense. If you can't identify a dependent clause, a correlative conjunction, a dangling participle, or any of the other terms on your ninth grade English quizzes, I would review the basics with a more digestible book first. My favorite is the McGraw-Hill Handbook of English Grammar and Usage, 2nd Edition.

平均4.0 星 Good Editing Guide For Writers 2010年2月24日
评论者 Laura Cross - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 平装 已确认购买
Line By Line: How To Edit Your Own Writing demystifies line editing and enables authors to polish their own manuscripts. Author Claire Kehrwald Cook walks writers through the process step-by step from how to read and evaluate a sentence, to how to condense sentences to succinctly and clearly convey meaning. Along the way she tackles all the usual suspects: weak verbs, prepositional phrases, modifiers, structure, ambiguous words, parallelism and correlative conjunctions, punctuation, and subject-verb disagreement.

Most helpful are the extensive glossary of `questionable word usage' and the numerous examples that help guide readers during editing. Used alongside a good book on grammar (such as Mignon Fogarty's Grammar Girl's Quick & Dirty Tips For Better Writing) and a professional developmental editor, Line By Line is a valuable resource for any writer wanting to craft a well-written manuscript.

平均2.0 星 A little basic... 2013年7月16日
评论者 Keith T. Merritt - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 平装 已确认购买
This book focused more on grammatical editing issues like parallel sentence structure, verb-noun agreements. It seemed a bit basic as far as applying concepts to editing and spent far too much time going over grammar terms, like "gerunds", etc., that while good to know, did not really help me learn how to edit writing the way I thought the book would. Even at the low price, more concise lessons can be had on the internet for free.

平均3.0 星 It's okay 2014年2月3日

The writer discusses sentences in great grammar detail. You can tell she is very knowledge able but you constantly have to refer back to the sentence she is discussing which gets lost in the paragraphs of discussion about it. I would have liked more examples of the grammar points and perhaps the sentences discussed in bold so that they are easier to find when you want to compare the example to what she is saying.

平均5.0 星 You've got to buy this book! 2007年6月11日
评论者 Amazon Customer - 已在美国亚马逊上发表

Superb! I am a programmer by day and a writer of articles on programming at other times.

Growing up in England I was taught every miniscule detail of the English language. How to construct sentences and how pronunciation changes depending on word stems, Country of origin and so on. I had a pretty good grasp on writing. At work I spend some of my time re-writing briefing notes, user manuals, and proof-reading emails.

On top of this I study grammar and style manuals. You get a feel for where I'm coming from in terms of expertise.

This book changed my entire outlook on writing. I am only up to page 26 and already I have hacked through some articles like a whipper-snipper through a weeded garden. I found some habitual mistakes I constantly make and curbed some emerging ones. This is a fantastic book!

The last briefing note I edited started as a monstrosity of bad grammar and ended as a shining example of what this book has to offer.

I cannot recommend this book enough. It is only 200 pages but not a word is wasted. It is concise and packed full of information and is an example of its own subject.
