I just love this book When I first heard Terry Gross interviewing Dreyer on NPR s Fresh Air I thought he was trying too hard to make amusing something that can be utterly stultifying However when I had the chance to listen to Dreyer reading the book published by Penguin Random House Audio I was entranced and delighted How can this be you ask It is simply perverse and counterintuitive that reading a style book on writing would be amusingDreyer s delivery is dry dry as a bone so o o dry that I would be laughing aloud missing his next entry as he lined up all the stupid stuff we write the adverbs extra adjectives and the very uniue emphasizers I was amazed Dreyer could read this text aloud and make sense filled as it is with examples he needs to capitalize or spell a certain way I could follow it And it was interesting He rarely read from his footnotes which are copious and useful and also funny one good reason to get both the book and the audio One can even make the case that audio is an excellent format for this material as rules run into one another and it is complicated and time consuming to both separate the rules and look them up Dreyer just gives it to us conversationally in context and without taking out the ruler Practically all of us are writers indeed publishers now whether we write blogs notes to friends or posts for social media We need to take care our words communicate what we want them to say and not what we did not wish to say We all must be copy editors as well and we need Dreyer to tell us what we really meanBenjamin Dreyer has worn a lot of hats all at the same company He began as a freelance proofreader moved to Copy Editor then Production Editor and finally Copy Chief at Random House now one of the largest book publishers in the United States In this BN podcast interview Dreyer describes the distinction between those jobs and how after he moved into management he had an opportunity to circle back and spend time highlighting discrepancies between good and bad writing He s awfully good at it he s funny and he s seen it all in his nearly thirty years in the business I kept thinking how much there is to know about using language even for native speakers and how useful this material is to all of us So I went and bought the hardcopyDreyer admits to hating grammar that is he hates grammar jargon Which is just fine because I usually just skip those parts What the heck I figure If I haven t learned it yet what good will it do me I am not a completist I tried to follow his rules in this review so far as I recall them having laughed through half of them and listened with half an ear when he hit on something I d worried over in the pastmy memories probing that sore place like a tongue in the socket of a lost tooth How reassuring it is to me to know that the past tense of wreak is wreaked something with which I have struggled There was a point on a long drive when I started laughing uncontrollably at the stuff he says In this case it was GRISLYGRISTLYGRIZZLYGRIZZLEDGory crimes are grislyTough meat is gristlySome bears are grizzlyMistaken references to grizzly crimes unless committed by actual bears in which case OK are extremely popular although good for a chuckle and to be avoided strenuously Grizzled refers to hair streaked with gray and by extension it does make a decent synonym for old It does not mean as many people seem to think it does either unkempt or ruggedIt s okay if you didn t laugh at that I m telling you Dreyer s wit is cumulative If you have ever seen those old books by Richard Lederer I recall one was called Anguished English you ll know exactly what I mean Three generations of my family sat shouting and crying with laughter at the difficulty of writing wellPeople who write for a living won t want to miss this Journalists novelists public speakers politicians business people who write reports social media junkies When he actually points out our common errors we admit with chagrin it looks and sounds silly
