Book Reviews - Essential English by Sir Harold Evans

UK Kirkus Review » Journalists' plaudits cover the back of Evans's magisterial and readable tome. His discussion of headlines, the production process of newspapers and introductions that 'still the itchiest subbing fingers' are most relevant to those working in the media. But anybody who writes at work or for pleasure will profit from his advice: content, after all, is nothing without an editorial context and there is no meaning without clarity. Evans is a former editor of both The Times and the Sunday Times, arguably the most gifted journalist of his generation, and his judgements steer neatly between the excessive demands of grammarians and the unhappy enthusiasms of the vulgarians: they have real authority and value.
