This is the third, expanded and revised, edition of the modern "Guardian" style guide, used by journalists at "The Guardian," "The Observer" and guardian.co.uk. "Guardian Style" will help you distinguish between so-called rules of grammar that are an aid to good writing and those that you can cheerfully ignore.
It's also a mine of information, from the essential to the arcane, from the useful to the things that you never realised you needed to know.
This new edition has been updated throughout to take in political change, the latest fads in cliches and the importance of online readers, with a section devoted to digital editing and blogging.
Wise and witty, irreverent and informed, "Guardian Style" is an indispensable guide to the use of good English. '"The Guardian" has been my desert island newspaper for 50 years, not always for what it has said, but just as often for the way it has said it' - David Hare.
