  1. Well-done and easy to understand If anyone wants a book that is easy to understand when learning to proofread, it’s definitely this one. I loved it and have made it a part of my professional library. The author is very complete and thorough without being too redundant or superflous. I had bought another proofreading book through Amazon.com which was horrible, stuffy, and boring. Even though this book was a little more expensive, it was well worth the extra cost.
