Write it Right

(4.4 stars; 21 reviews)

Witty, opinionated alphabetical examples of what Bierce considered poor (American) English and advice on alternatives - entertaining, thought-provoking, occasionally outdated but so interesting to see how style and taste have changed. Summary by Philippa. (1 hr 41 min)

(4 stars)

This book is entertaining, although it does not give the preferred way to communicate in each example.

short but worthwhile

(5 stars)

some of the examples aren't no-no's but when they are the snark is what they deserve :p
