Adverbs & Clichés in a Nutshell: Demonstrated Subversions of Adverbs & Clichés into Gourmet Imagery (Writing in a Nutshell Series) (Volume 2)

Adverbs & Clichés in a Nutshell: Demonstrated Subversions of Adverbs & Clichés into Gourmet Imagery (Writing in a Nutshell Series) (Volume 2) - Jessica Bell What is the central idea discussed in the book? This is a pocket size guide about how to write better. As the author indicates, she has written this and other books in the series based on her own experiences. This is the second book we are reading from the same author and she did not disappoint. This book is focused on the usage od adverbs and cliches.
What evidence does the author use to support the book's ideas? Each chapter is a different example on the correct use of adverbs and cliches. I found this especially interesting. There are so many errors we do not realise we are writing or reading.
What kind of language does the author use? The author's language is simple and to the point. From the title, one would expect the book to be over-crowded with explanation but it isn't. She directly points out examples. Think of it like this, I'm not telling you what to do. I am showing you how to do it.
Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author.
