Descripción de editorial

From the Errors of Others is a collection of crisp, witty, and slyly informative essays for grownups with a sense of humor. The subject is communication--good, bad, and patently bizarre. The author is Rebecca Lyles, an experienced editor but not a wrist-slapping schoolmarm. Neither giggly nor ponderous, she eagerly tells tales out of school. There are boneheads and blowhards in our midst, she says, but we dont have to take them seriously. And we certainly dont have to imitate them.

From the Errors of Others is a refreshing alternative to those heavy handbooks we never opened in school. Its not only far more entertaining than those dreary tomes, in the end, perhaps surprisingly, its also much more enlightening. Imagine that: a smart book about writing and speaking effectively that people will actually enjoy reading.

-- Richard Nordquist, PhD.
