    One thought on “Essential English for Journalists, Editors and Writers”

    1. It's always a little disconcerting to discover a mistake in a book that's about how to write well, even if it might simply be a case of an accidental misprint.That said, this is a great book! It's an ideal read for journalists and anyone else who wants to write good copy to make a living. It will make you think about not just what you write, but how you write. And its witty quips make what could be a very dry read quite entertaining. But that's hardly a surprise when you consider Evans was one o [...]

    2. The best book on journalistic writing ever written. I first encountered it in journalism college; 25 years on it remains within arms reach on my desk, next to an Oxford dictionary, Roget's Thesaurus and Fowler. This edition combines Evans' Newsman's English (1972) and News Headlines (1974) to give a comprehensive guide to newspaper (or website) text.

    3. A great and very, very, useful book. One to keep close and dip into: frequently. Despite my initial forebodings, this book is a lively and memorable read.

    4. Read it at work, while waiting for a PC. It is commonsensical, and full of astute editing suggestions. A new version for online editing would be super-useful.

    5. I love this book! Since I am studying journalismI will read it again and again. I think it is interesting for everyone who wants to write a good clear English.

    6. The perfect cure for those who believe that "good" writing necessarily involves the use of bombastic phrases and big words: goo/m31PH (The Reading Room).
