Overview

Originally created to help the writers at The Globe and Mail present clear, accurate, and concise stories in Canada's National Newspaper, this comprehensive and entertaining style guide has now become a valuable tool for anyone who must put words on paper.

In this thoroughly revised new edition, writers will find help in avoiding both common and unexpected pitfalls, and easy-to-follow advice on reshaping passages that get in the way of a story.

The Globe and Mail Style Book also provides expert guidance on:

how to refer to Canadian organizations, our court system and government

people and placenames, in Canada and around the world (with 16 pages of maps)

punctuation, spelling, and rules of grammar

Canadian expressions and much more, eh?

Authoritative, concise, and a jolly good read, it's all here from "Abattoir" to "Zuider Zee."
