This book is packed with practical, user-friendly advice and is written with warmth, humor, sympathy, and flair….Designed to be an in-the-trenches desktop reference, this indispensable resource can help scholars develop a productive self-editing habit, advise their graduate and other students on style, and, ultimately, get their work published and praised.”–Publisher summary
