    A lot of the material in this book can be found free online in author blogs, but having it altogether in one place is nice. I loved that Kristen mentioned that even professional publishing houses that have manuscripts seen by 4-5 editors still have typos – because they do. It’s not okay to publish a book without editing it, but if you wait for perfection it will never happen.Ms. Eckstein also shared some great tips on how to prepare your manuscript before sending it to a professional editor.

    Excellent advice on what to look for in my writing. I liked that Kristen warned that parts of this book is also in her Quick Guide to Turning Your Speech into a Book. There were parts of this book I already knew but enjoyed the review. Gave great tips on how to format my book before submitting it to the format team. This is a keeper on my reference shelf.

    A great editing bookKristen laid out some great tips and most importantly, she went through the proper usage of the common misused words, such as lie example is like and lay.

    This book was indeed a quick, helpful guide to the editing process. It was clear, concise, and easy to read as well. Although it wasn't quite what I was looking for, I found it to be a good resource for beginning writers. :)

    This is a very short editing guide but the information inside is incredibly useful. The section on actual things to look out for in your writing was helpful, but I always cringe that some people would even need to look for some of those mistakes. I wish I could say that didn't need to be included but I'd be wrong. The section on how to format your manuscript before sending to your editor is something I hadn't considered. Since many editors want to see a sample of the work they'll be working on, [...]

    Kristen Eckstein clearly knows a lot about publishing. She shares snippets of useful information, like finding inexpensive editors and a checklist of common grammar errors, in this book. I consider this a basic primer to editing your book.If you're wondering how quick it is to read, it took me an hour.I've read a few of Eckstein's quick guides, and I look forward to reading any she writes on subjects that I'm interested in.

    Eh. It is exactly what the title says it is.a "quick" guide. I didn't learn anything new, but it certainly didn't hurt for me to be reminded of the information provided in Kristen Eckstein's quick guide. If you're just starting out and/or haven't studied editing much, this is certainly very helpful. And, as I said, even though I didn't learn anything new, it's still worth being reminded.

    This booklet was written in less than few hours I think and it shows. Nothing useful here, bit it was quick and it was free.

    Introduction:When I started reading this book, I had just started one of my final edits for a novel and I picked up this one so I could hopefully find some tips. I'm glad I did, too.Clarity: 1/1Kristen Eckstein did a very good job making her book short, easy to read, and straight to the point. I had not problem following along with the book. Each point was explained well and concisely.Usability: .75/1I'm not sure how many points to give this one. Much of what I read I already knew, especially re [...]
