"Getting the Words Right" addresses rewriting and revising, which in may ways is the most important step in the writing process - the step where you make certain that the finished product is decent and presentable to the intended audience. But this book is helpful beyond the expected parameters of revisions. Written with humor and instructing with examples, it is engaging as well as instructive. I believe writers of blogs to books, and everything in between, will glean a few helpful tips.
