5.0 out of 5 stars Same as Merriam-Webster's Guide to Punctuation and Style 20 May 2009
By K. Brett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I like this book very much and do recommend it. But I own it in another form, Merriam-Webster's Guide to Punctuation and Style.

I ordered the Concise Handbook for Writers thinking it was something different, but the contents are *identical* to Merriam-Webster's Guide to Punctuation and Style. I reviewed both books thoroughly and cannot find any difference between them.

If you want a slightly less expensive version of this book in mass-market paperback format, check out Merriam-Webster's Guide to Punctuation and Style.

3.0 out of 5 stars Handbook for writers 17 Oct. 2011
By Marlene - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was too technical for me; what I needed was something totally different, something that addressed the creative nature of a text, i.e., like use of methaphors, a cathchy opening, and/or use of point of view. This book was recommened to me by an editor and it was not what I neeed as a novel writer

5.0 out of 5 stars More than the average writing resource books 16 Aug. 2002
By 😺AmazonCustomer😺 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Whether you need a simple letter or a thesis, this handbook will enhance your writing and grammar skills. What makes this book so complete is that it offers many explanations for a topic. Take for example the "comma", the most frequently used punctuation mark. You will have plenty of examples on how to use it correctly, and examples on its usage in a sentence.

How do you use a comma with a compound modifier? How about using the comma with contrasting expressions? What about using it "with omitted words"??

Here, you have 10 examples on how to use ellipsis. Take a look at the many examples for compound words...noun+noun; adjective + noun; participle + noun; noun +verb+er; .... You get the picture? This little book also contains thorough data on copy editing and proofreading. What is included here in this booklet is what many writing books lack.

This is a concise, easy to follow, complete aid for anything you set out to write! ....Rizzo.
