English can be a language full of spellings that look right but are dead wrong. Toss in those infuriating sound-alikes (they're/their/there, its/it's, except/accept), which computer spell checkers usually don't catch, and it's no wonder that 99% of us are often embarassed and undermined by unwitting typos.
If you have ever searched for a world in a dictionary and have not been able to find it or if you are at a loss about a word, good news: you've just picked up the book that promises to be the single most invaluable resource on your desk.
1001 Commonly Misspelled Words is organized phonetically, enabling readers to look up words without having to know how to spell them (look up, for example, illusive, and find the correct spelling: elusive) also packed with excellent memeory shortcuts ("there's a rat in separate"), 1001 Commonly Misspelled Words is a wonderfully painless solution to spelling maladies. Because when it comes down to it, the art of corret spelling is a crucial ingredient for getting ahead in today's knowledgeable - er, knowledgeable - world.
