Product Details

Praise

“The book in my hands just might be the least useful writing aid ever compiled…But then, of course, that’s exactly the point…Pull[s] apart words and sentences with a strange blend of cleverness and sophomoric humor…A lot of writers and editors have little reason to laugh these days; thank goodness we’ve got something here.”
—NewYorker.com

“Anyone who has ever searched for le mot juste will laugh — what’s the word? — hysterically…Write More Good makes the death of journalism funnier than it has any right to be (while potentially hastening it along).”
—NPR

“Succeeds both as one funny book and also as a crash course in how to get fired from any job requiring you to submit writing for publication…Readers who enjoy humor in the vein of The Onion will love this book, a kind of unholy love child of William Strunk Jr. and E.B. White’s The Elements of Style and The Daily Show…For those who like their humor with a little bite.”
Library Journal (starred review)

“It’s a brain-exploding mix of Dave Barry meets Borowitz meets the original AP Stylebook, and while the results aren’t always pretty, they are pretty funny.”
—Tom Chandler, The Writer Underground

“Write More Good aims to embrace the lowering standards of the written word. It’s so funny I could cry.”
—Chron.com (Houston Chronicle)

“I would like to praise the authors for not doing what anyone else in the Internet Age would have done, which is simply cutting and pasting together a slew of tweets, calling it a book, and raking in the dough from Old Media.”
—Roger Ebert

“Write More Good is your AP Stylebook unshaven and hungover after the latest round of media layoffs. Editors, writers, and sticklers will enjoy the satire, but the poop jokes are for everyone.”
—Jeff Deck, coauthor of The Great Typo Hunt: Two Friends Changing the World, One Correction at a Time
 
“You can read Write More Good simply for laughs: Its expanded hits of @FakeAPStylebook wit and humor will have you reading it aloud to cubicle neighbors. But if you aspire to truly great writing—whether you’re a hopeful author, a professional editor, or a celebrity who just pays someone—well, you’re definitely going to need a different book.”
—Carol Fisher Saller, author of The Subversive Copy Editor
