Review from previous edition: "An excellent book ... indispensable to anyone compiling a style guide ... The multitude of real-life examples demonstrating the practices described make the book equally useful to experienced writers checking specific points and to novices needing broader guidance." --Institute of Scientific and Technical Communicators (ISTC) Magazine, Sept 2008
