Reminiscent of the classic Strunk and White guide to style, How to Swat the KILLER BEs Out of Your Writing is a sleek book addressing one of the most vexing problems facing all writers: catching and changing passive voice into active voice once and for all. I will recommend Barnes' must-have guide to every student and editing client. --Elizabeth Lyon, editor and bestselling author of six how-to books for writers including Manuscript Makeover and The Sell Your Novel Tool Kit
If Sister Alberta, my fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth grade English teacher learns about this book, she'll be doing handsprings in delight.

So, while there isn't anything new here, it's presented in an accessible manner, and concise enough, it's easy to use as a reference. I'll be keeping it loaded on my Kindle for those all-to-frequent times when my brain refuses to function and I need a quick refresher on avoiding passive voice.
