Item description for Polishing the PUGS: Punctuation, Usage, Grammar, and Spelling by Kathy Ide...

Overview
How many reference books do you have on your desk? A couple of dictionaries, several grammar books, two or three style guides? Wouldn't it be nice if you could have just one go-to book for all your editing needs? Well, now you can! Freelance editor Kathy Ide highlights the most common mistakes writers make in the areas of Punctuation, Usage, Grammar, and Spelling: PUGS. With punctuation rules from The Chicago Manual of Style (the industry-standard reference for books) and The Associated Press Stylebook (for newspaper articles), spelling and usage from the dictionaries recommended by both style guides, plus grammar tips from A Dictionary of Modern American Usage and The Wordwatcher's Guide to Good Grammar & Word Usage, this book has it all. There are even guidelines from The Christian Writer's Manual of Style for those who write for the inspirational market. This 2nd edition incorporates the changes made in The Chicago Manual of Style's 16th edition ((C) 2010). It's also been expanded to include issues that writers have mentioned they'd like to see addressed in the new Polishing the PUGS. If what you're looking for isn't in this book, and you have to look up a rule or a spelling, you can jot down what you find in the spaces provided throughout Polishing the PUGS.

Reviews - What do customers think about Polishing the PUGS: Punctuation, Usage, Grammar, and Spelling?

Great resource for writers!  Jan 14, 2008
This is a fabulous resource for writers--sort of a "best of" everything The Chicago Manual of Style, Strunk's Elements of Style and other standard manuals on writing, all compiled into one easy reference spot. My favorite feature is the blank space at the end of each section for you to make notes about your own pet PUG peeves. I just got my copy and I've already added several spelling words to the blank space in the "commonly misspelled words" section: squat, squash, parallel, peeve, prejudice, weird and misspelled, for starters. Those words always seem to trick me to the point I can't even find them in the dictionary. With this book, everything is at your fingertips in a well-organized fashion. I predict I'll wear out this copy within the year.
