WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"Brilliant! The perfect companion for anyone who ever has to write anything!"
Louisa Chudley, Founder, Spark Social
“What a clever, useful, nifty book! Just wonderful!”
Tom Read Wilson, TV Presenter and Author
“This book is amazing – no matter how many years you’ve been writing and no matter how much of a grammar nerd you are. It’s one of those books you’ll keep next to your computer at all times.”
Anna Gunning, Director, Gunning Marketing
I’ve been working with words for 20+ years and I still get plenty of these mixed up. With this great little book on my desk, everything is clear!
Tom Albrighton, Author, How to Write Clearly
“This book is a delight. So well written and so useful for anyone who ever has to write. The perfect mix of aesthetic and usability! You’ll keep returning again and again. Top stuff.”
Kevin Chesters, Author, The Creative Nudge
“This book is clear, intuitive and fun. But that’s not what I’m interested in. I’m a copywriter, so when I need to double check a ‘confusable’, time is money. So I tested it, and found it to be more than twice as quick as Googling. The conclusion – I’m keeping this book on my desk at all times.”
Matt Phil Carver, Freelance Copywriter
