Review of Editor Proof Your Writing by Don McNair

Title: Editor Proof Your Writing

Author: Don McNair

Publisher: Linden Publishing

What It's About: EDITOR PROOF YOUR WRITING is about polishing your writing to a standard that is more likely to get you published. The author walks writers through several chapters on content revision and editing to make writing more crisp and concise.

Why I Read It: I love writing, but I know that I can always improve. This looked like a good book for somebody who wants to be a published author.

What I Liked About It: This book is designed to walk you through editing your work in progress, if you have one. This is a helpful aspect because it puts you into a productive mode with your writing as you're reading the book. The editing chapters were very eye-opening. I didn't realize how many of the writing flaws that McNair outlines show up in my own writing.

What I Didn't Like About It: There's really not anything that I didn't like about the book. It was very helpful, and I would recommend it to other writers.
