  1. Masterful teaching, which could even lead to world peace I read Einsohn once or twice a year. She covers so much, so well, that it’s always a helpful refresher. In discussing editorial issues she goes beyond issuing decrees. She compares approaches from different style guides, and quotes contending arguments for a larger problem-solving view. In fact, I have to suspect that her intelligent middle path between dogmatic legalism and unprincipled permissiveness is indeed the key to world peace.

  2. A Must-Have for Copy Editors “In service of the ‘Cardinal C’: communication” author Amy Einsohn hits a home run. The book is easy to read, full of examples, and offers the critical guidance any copy editor needs. As a freelance writer/editor, I highly recommend this book to anyone who edits the work of other writers.
