For some, editing is a necessary evil. They are the people who are in a hurry to put their ideas into words; but lack the patience to reflect and craft those words into something that communicates really well.

This book not only covers aspects of the process; but it also goes beyond the process; showing you things that may help you to become better than the “average” editor.
