Get this. Period. Full Stop. Writing with Style is not revolutionary. It is not mind altering or world shattering. Writing with Style is plain common sense and simple writing advice -- which we all forget or ignore and need to be reminded of on a regular basis. I don't write RPGs except for those adventures I run for my players. I do write books, however, and magazine articles, and I have the advantage of a kick-ass copy editor with the mind of a Byzantine lawyer and the heart of a grammar loving Mongol. All of those things, in theory, put me way ahead of the game. But I've had Writing with Style open on my desktop for a couple of months now as I work on a couple of projects and it makes a difference. It makes me think, simplify, write in a way that, I hope will make my copy editor give her grudging approval. Nice job Ray Vallese. I still punctuate by sense of smell, but that's a matter for another book.
