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.
