Praise for the first and second editions: "The Copyeditor's Handbook brims with valuable information, good advice, and helpful suggestions for novice copyeditors and experienced practitioners. It is comforting to know that current and future copyeditors will be able to turn to this handbook. I'm placing this work, which fills a huge gap in the literature, right beside my dictionary, and will highly recommend it to all my colleagues and students." —Alice Levine, Lecturer, The Denver Publishing Institute, and freelance editor "A definite 'must have' for the beginning to intermediate editor or author, and even the experienced editor. An indispensable reference tool." —Kim Hawley, President, The Chicago Book Clinic "This is the book that every teacher of editing has been waiting for: thorough, clear, authoritative, up-to-date, and sane." —Beth Luey, Director, Scholarly Publishing Program, Arizona State University "This book warms the cockles of the copyediting heart. It is thorough, useful, helpful, and smart. And it fills a huge vacuum." —Constance Hale, author of Sin and Syntax and Wired Style "An excellent resource. The Copyeditor's Handbook should sit on every business editor's shelf, next to the in-house style guide." —Erika Henik, Research Publications Manager, Banc of America Securities LLC "The first three chapters alone are worth the cover price.

An excellent reference work for workplace writing."—Mark Armstrong, Business Communication Quarterly "Straightforward, sound advice for beginning or intermediate copyeditors working with pencil or online."—Priscilla S.

Two essential resources for writers and editors, this set includes The Copyeditor's Handbook, now in its fourth edition, and The Copyeditor's Workbook, the new companion to the bestselling handbook. Unstuffy, hip, and often funny, The Copyeditor's Handbook: A Guide for Book Publishing and Corporate Communications has become an indispensable resource both for new editors and for experienced hands who want to refresh their skills and broaden their understanding of the craft of copyediting. This fourth edition incorporates the latest advice from language authorities, usage guides, and new editions of major style manuals, including The Chicago Manual of Style. It registers the tectonic shifts in twenty-first-century copyediting: preparing text for digital formats, using new technologies, addressing global audiences, complying with plain language mandates, ensuring accessibility, and serving self-publishing authors and authors writing in English as a second language. The new edition also adds an extensive annotated list of editorial tools and references and includes a bit of light entertainment for language lovers, such as a brief history of punctuation marks that didn't make the grade, the strange case of razbliuto, and a few Easter eggs awaiting discovery by keen-eyed readers. The Copyeditor's Workbook: Exercises and Tips for Honing Your Editorial Judgment--a new companion to the handbook--is a comprehensive and practical education in the art of copyediting for both aspiring and experienced editors. More than forty exercises of increasing difficulty and length, covering a range of subject matter, enable you to advance in skill and confidence. Detailed answer keys and explanations offer a grounding in editorial basics, appropriate usage choices for different contexts and audiences, and advice on communicating effectively and professionally with authors and clients. Whether the workbook exercises are undertaken alone or alongside the new edition of The Copyeditor's Handbook, they provide a thorough workout in the essential knowledge and skills required of contemporary editors.
