平均4.0 星 Written in 1985 2016年2月9日
评论者 Christina Darling - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 平装 已确认购买
Be aware that this book was published in 1985, a fact I overlooked when I was purchasing it. A number of suggestions are grossly outdated despite the general good advice the author provides. This is particularly true when it comes to new or evolved terminology related to computers and technology now commonplace in our lives. It is interesting to see how language changes over the years. In addition, many examples refer to Biblical events, a style decision I don't think a modern author would make. It actually contains the phrase "Writers like God and Shakespeare know when to break the rules," which gave me a hearty laugh. Although I would love to see a new edition of this title, it is not so out-of-date to be considered useless. This book contains a wealth of great content that will help me improve my writing.
平均5.0 星 The most useful book on writing 2016年2月8日
评论者 Gerard Wilson - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 平装 已确认购买
If you think you write well (as I did) I strongly recommend reading this book. I have a number of helpful books on the creative and technical aspects of writing prose, but Claire Kehrwald Cook's book is by far and away the most helpful I have read. Where other books help in curbing the tendency to overwrite, this book puts a scalpel in the writer's hand that enables him to explore and cut deeply. You will be surprised how much the resulting excisions and rearrangements improve your writing. I found the chapters 'Faulty Connections' and 'Il-matched Partners' the most helpful. Without doubt this book has improved my writing. It will continue to do so as I regularly return to it

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2.0 星 Too Wordy 2015年10月3日
评论者 California Dreamin - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 平装 已确认购买
I expect a book on writing or editing to itself be well-written! Instead this book is packed with loose baggy sentences and shows no sign of having been thoroughly edited for clarity. I give it two stars not one because it seems to contain good ideas to improve my writing, but the presentation and prose make reading this book a chore and not a pleasure.

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.
