For example, the author suggests “drawing a line under a word or phrase indicates the language has been singled out for a specific reason.”
No modern grammar book I’ve read suggests underlining. That was for typewriter days when neither italics nor bold were available to draw attention to something.
I should have looked at the author’s website before I ordered:
“Whether you choose an editor for their educational background or their gifted-talent, make sure you choose the one that will work best with you. One that understands your style and your needs.”
“An editor” is singular; “their” is plural.
“One that understands your style and your needs.” What happened to the verb?
Advertising copywriters often take shortcuts, but editors should model excellent use of language and punctuation. This editor let me down.
* "Numerals & Numbers"
* "Word Choice"
* "Style & Usage"
When I have a question about grammar or punctuation, I want to find the answer quickly. "Grammar Done Right" has become my writing bible. It has earned a permanent place next to my computer.
While the Chicago Manual of Style may be considered the de facto standard, I rarely use it because I reach for Grammar Done Right! first and have always found the answer to my query there.
Language is fluid. Spellings change as words come into common usage. Reddick addresses this fact in the expanded and revised 2nd edition. She makes suggestions for the different ways terms may be used in professional and casual writing. The examples are especially helpful with technical terminology.
With so much information being delivered electronically via the Internet and by e-mail, Grammar Done Right! is a must have resource for all business professionals and those who write for Internet publication including bloggers.
Faithfully consulting Grammar Done Right! has helped me evolve into a better writer.
I'm looking forward to my new copy of the 2nd edition becoming an old friend and getting as worn and dog-eared as the first one.

Finally! Books for non-geeks to create an online presence that works.
This book is like having an editor sitting next to you as you write your emails and letters. A quick scan of the book and it's obvious that Karen understands what we all are thinking, "a .vs an", "that .vs who" are only a few examples in the Word Choice section.
I will wear out (or is it "where out" -- just kidding) this book in no time at all.
