Parts of this book, such as the section on Plain English, can be read with interest in one hit, while other parts dealing with punctuation, formatting, referencing etc will be used on a needs basis utilising the excellent contents and index sections. The explanations all include very clear examples. Sections on publishing, print and e-book and self publishing provide excellent advice for writers new to the game. Perhaps the most important aspect of this book is that it educates by example. The advice it gives it also models.
