Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Praise for the first and second editions:

"The Copyeditor's Handbook brims with valuable information, good advice, and helpful suggestions for novice copyeditors and experienced practitioners. It is comforting to know that current and future copyeditors will be able to turn to this handbook. I'm placing this work, which fills a huge gap in the literature, right beside my dictionary, and will highly recommend it to all my colleagues and students." —Alice Levine, Lecturer, The Denver Publishing Institute, and freelance editor

"A definite 'must have' for the beginning to intermediate editor or author, and even the experienced editor. An indispensable reference tool." —Kim Hawley, President, The Chicago Book Clinic

"This is the book that every teacher of editing has been waiting for: thorough, clear, authoritative, up-to-date, and sane." —Beth Luey, Director, Scholarly Publishing Program, Arizona State University

"This book warms the cockles of the copyediting heart. It is thorough, useful, helpful, and smart. And it fills a huge vacuum." —Constance Hale, author of Sin and Syntax and Wired Style

"An excellent resource. The Copyeditor's Handbook should sit on every business editor's shelf, next to the in-house style guide." —Erika Henik, Research Publications Manager, Banc of America Securities LLC

"The first three chapters alone are worth the cover price. It's a book that acknowledges an assortment of vexing copyediting questions and offers multiple answers to most of them."—Gary Hernandez, Technical Communication

"An excellent textbook to teach the essentials of copyediting. An excellent reference work for workplace writing."—Mark Armstrong, Business Communication Quarterly

"Straightforward, sound advice for beginning or intermediate copyeditors working with pencil or online."—Priscilla S. Taylor, The Editorial Eye

"Lays out the copyeditor's obligations with humor, style, and perspective."—Walter Pagel, Science Editor

Synopsis:

The Copyeditor's Handbook is a lively, practical manual for newcomers to publishing and for experienced editors who want to fine-tune their skills or broaden their understanding of the craft. This book may be used for self-instruction or as a textbook in copyediting classes. The exercises are accompanied by answer keys and detailed line-by-line explanations.

The third edition features

• Updates reflecting the 16th edition of The Chicago Manual of Style and the most current editions of other major style manuals.

• Additional updates to register technology-driven changes in onscreen editing procedures and typecoding.

• A revised chapter on resources for editors.

• Expanded bibliography and glossary.

All Capps, August 7, 2012 (view all comments by All Capps)
I have been copyediting for nearly a decade, and I can't believe this year is the first I came upon it. I saw it at the library, checked it out, read it during a plane trip, referred to it during a copyediting test, and immediately bought the new edition at Powell's when I learned there was a new edition. I credit this book with landing me one client to date, and recommend it to anyone interested in or perplexed by grammar.
