Overview

'How many reference books do you have on your desk? A couple of dictionaries, several grammar books, two or three style guides? Wouldn’t it be nice if you could have just one go-to book for all your editing needs? Well, now you can!
Freelance editor Kathy Ide highlights the most common mistakes writers make in the areas of Punctuation, Usage, Grammar, and Spelling: PUGS. With punctuation rules from The Chicago Manual of Style (the industry-standard reference for books) and The Associated Press Stylebook (for newspaper articles), spelling and usage from the dictionaries recommended by both style guides, plus grammar tips from A Dictionary of Modern American Usage and The Wordwatcher’s Guide to Good Grammar & Word Usage, this book has it all.
There are even guidelines from The Christian Writer’s Manual of Style for those who write for the inspirational market.

This 2nd edition incorporates the changes made in The Chicago Manual of Style’s 16th edition (© 2010). It’s also been expanded to include issues that writers have mentioned they’d like to see addressed in the new Polishing the PUGS.

If what you’re looking for isn’t in this book, and you have to look up a rule or a spelling, you can jot down what you find in the spaces provided throughout Polishing the PUGS.
That way you’ll have it at your fingertips the next time you need it. No matter what kind of writing you do, this book will help you polish your work in record time, leaving you more hours—and more desk space—to write.

    Fascinating

    Kathy Ide has presented this wonderful book to provide a guide for anyone speaking the English Language. It is easily understood by students, Writers, journalists, and anyone needing a reference to common English Usage. I am a Writer and Author and from time to time forget, who/whom and underline or quotes, because I am concentrating on my Writing. Kathy Ide has given Writers, Authors, Journalists, and anyone needing a quick look at the "Proper Way" to use this "Complex Thing" we call the English Language.
