Benjamin Dreyer's narration is as charming and witty as his writing. This will help anyone who is not passionate about words and language get through the sections of this audiobook that are long lists of commonly confused words or proper nouns that are difficult to spell correctly. On the other hand, why would someone not seriously interested in correct usage listen to this audiobook? For all its entertainment value, it is a useful reference work--although the audio form is not ideal for finding information. Where Dreyer's recommendations are based, even in part, on personal preferences, he is careful to inform the listener, and the audiobook is filled with anecdotes from his distinguished career in publishing. Alison Fraser's narration of numerous examples is also exemplary. D.M.H. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2019]
