A recommended guide for editors
on 8 September 2012
I've subscribed to The Economist for many years. One of the things I admire is the care taken to achieve "house style". So when I got the job of editing our pensioners' newsletter I wanted some handy reference book that would help achieve literary consistency etc. The Style Guide fulfills this role admirably. Part 1 - the essence of style - is the section that I find most useful, rather less so parts 2 and 3 (American vs British English and the reference section). It can be a bit difficult to find something (when you know it's in there) so the overall index is helpful.
(And some of the entries are quite humerous.)
