修文技術を磨くのにいい本です。わかりづらい文章をどう直すかじっくり考えるのにいいです。本の構成が少しlinearなので、辞書的には使うには向いていません。

This book changed my life! 1998/7/19
投稿者 カスタマー - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
In 1985 I was a consultant and had to write a report on my findings for a client. I knew that my writing was not all that good, and since I was being paid a considerable sum to write the report I felt it should be written well.
Just at that time an ad in the New Yorker magazine caught my eye. It showed two columns side by side, one, the length of the page, the other, a quarter of the page. I read the ad and sure enough the first column was just like my writing, the second was crisp, to the point, and much more interesting to read. The headline said something to the effect of "how to take the first and turn it into the second".
I ordered the book and read it immediately. The first three chapters excited me so, I could hardly contain myself. It explained so clearly how I had to think about what I was writing, I felt I saw the light.
From that day on I took a whole different view of writing. It turned a task that I usually dreaded into something that I no! w love. Not that I am a great writer, but I feel confident that I can express myself well in my business and personal life. I feel that what I write is clear and easy to read. This has been very valuable to me as a businessman. I have written marketing material, technical manuals, company communications, and customer letters. Without this skill I know I would not have been nearly as successful and would have missed out on a great pleasure in life.
Well, I gave the book to my daughter when she went to college and I lost touch with it. A few years ago I wanted to locate it again but didn't know the title or author. The other day I suddenly got the idea that Amazon.com might help me find it. All I remembered was the year I saw the ad for the book and that a woman wrote it.
So I started to search and in less than 3 minutes I thought I had found it. I ordered it and sure enough it was Line by Line. When I got it in the mail I was so excited, I felt I had met up with a long los! t friend. I just ordered several more copies that I will sh! are with my staff because writing is one of the most important skills needed in today's business environment.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to make writing a part of his or her everyday life. It is wonderful!
By the way, I was proud of the report I wrote and the customer loved it too.
And thanks Amazon.com, you found a long lost friend of mine.

If you write, you should read this book. 2001/5/12

This book is fantastic. It's only about 200 pages, but densely packed with useful information, and every single page deserves careful study. The glossary of commonly confused words at the end is worth 10$ all by itself.
This is not a grammar book (though there is an appendix that gives an overview of English grammar). It is a book designed to improve your writing. It helps you make solid decisions about sentence structure, placing punctuation, and choosing the right words. This book can help guide you through some of the thorniest and most subjective aspects of writing English.
One of the neatest things about this book is that, in addition to the copious examples, the text itself serves as an example of excellent writing. Perhaps the major drawback is that after reading this book, you will end up being much more critical of the writing you encounter!

A Great Book Has Always Been Greatly Revised 2005/9/27
投稿者 E. B. Brinkley - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック
As the saying goes, "It's all in the revision." Or, there are no great first drafts. The true masters know that first drafts are terrible, second drafts are slightly better, and in the ninth or twelfth or twentieth draft, after sentences have been improved "Line by Line," mellifluous, deft prose reveals clearly what the author means to say. The meaning of too much writing is bogged down and obscured by under-par line editing. I once had the opportunity to work with an editor who had been at Henry Holt for many years, and when we sat down to go over my manuscript, she recommended this particular book. It has been at my bedside, along with the Bible and Whitman's "Leaves of Grass," ever since. The product of her years as a copy editor for the Modern Language Association (every writer should also own the MLA Handbook) Claire Cook's "Line by Line: How to Edit Your Own Writing," is not for the faint-hearted, nor is it for those who have yet to memorize "the little book" by Strunk and White. Even an English major and MFA holder who has written for newspapers, magazines, and literary journals will benefit greatly, and improve his or her chances of publication, by "eliminating the stylistic faults that most often impede reading and obscure meaning." A straightforward, five-chapter sequence addresses overwritten sentences, bad transitions, "mismanaged" references, problems with punctuation (at the advanced level), and other mistakes that doom writing, whether you're attempting to fine-tune a newsletter, a scholarly paper, a business proposal, or a short story. I have seen many, many books on improving one's writing, and this is, as the Holt editor indicated, as necessary a writing manual as Strunk and White's, and one that will elevate you from competent amateur to master prose stylist. (also recommended for the serious writer at any level: "The First Five Pages: A Writer's Guide to Staying Out of the Rejection Pile," by Noah Lukeman).

You've got to buy this book! 2007/6/11
投稿者 Amazon Customer - (Amazon.com)

Superb! I am a programmer by day and a writer of articles on programming at other times.

Growing up in England I was taught every miniscule detail of the English language. How to construct sentences and how pronunciation changes depending on word stems, Country of origin and so on. I had a pretty good grasp on writing. At work I spend some of my time re-writing briefing notes, user manuals, and proof-reading emails.

On top of this I study grammar and style manuals. You get a feel for where I'm coming from in terms of expertise.

This book changed my entire outlook on writing. I am only up to page 26 and already I have hacked through some articles like a whipper-snipper through a weeded garden. I found some habitual mistakes I constantly make and curbed some emerging ones. This is a fantastic book!

The last briefing note I edited started as a monstrosity of bad grammar and ended as a shining example of what this book has to offer.

I cannot recommend this book enough. It is only 200 pages but not a word is wasted. It is concise and packed full of information and is an example of its own subject.

Might be good for editing the work of others but not for self-editing. 2012/4/5
投稿者 Michelen - (Amazon.com)

Fairly early in the book, the author explains that her professional background primarily involved editing the work of others. I've done some of that myself and it is tricky to fix grammar and clarify thoughts without losing the voice of the original author. When I edit my own work, adding clarity and conciseness matter more than maintaining the original. I had hoped this book would help me to be more concise in my writing. It doesn't. I had hoped I could learn enough tricks of the trade to make my work require less self-editing. No luck there either.

The author does not appear to give herself permission to really rewrite and edit her own examples. Many of the suggested corrections look like they were constrained to maintain sentence structure rather than be edited correctly. Within the first 20 pages of the book, we have "corrected" examples like the following...

"In his classical period Goethe was so taken with the concept of a single ideal of beauty that..."

"The boy that had chased the big dog before attacked him with the stick."

I thought perhaps I was being overly critical and asked other writers on a webmaster forum what they thought of those two sentences. Some agreed the sentences were generally socially acceptable but most agreed they were poorly constructed.

The grammar expert of our group, not me by any means, quickly jumped on both sentences. She called them both awful. Her frustration at books like this one showed in her rewrite of the second sentence.

She suggested that the first one should have been changed to something like: "During his classical period, Goethe was so taken with the concept of a single ideal of beauty that he blah."

The second one has an obvious pronoun/antecedent problem. Her suggested rewrite was: "The boy chased a big dog and then attacked him with the damn stick."

Before anyone goes there, the grammarian I consulted has not published a book and I have no suggestions for an alternative to this one.

I suppose the author did the best she could when editing the writing of others. Author's egos must be stroked and an editor doesn't want to insert themselves into the work. However, this was supposed to be a book about editing your own writing. When the examples of corrected writing are poorly constructed and even grammatically incorrect, it would seem the advice given offers little value.

I would not recommend this book.

And, by the way, to the folks who attacked the other negative review...in some parts of the world, they use advise instead of advice just like they use colour instead of color.
