My time is incredibly limited, and the last thing I need is useless email
clogging up my in-box. I’ve been running my company for close to 20 years. Truth be told, I was highly skeptical that WordTrippers would be of any
benefit. WRONG! In less than 30 seconds, I learned I was using an incorrect word to describe something. As a new subscriber, I’m looking forward to all the Word Trippers.

You don’t want to embarrass yourself in print. But figuring out the
differences can be time-consuming and sometimes confusing. You’ll find clear explanations for each of the commonly confused word pairs. That makes it quick and easy to select the option that applies and then get back to the task at hand.

I highly recommend Word Trippers—a delightful and useful reference with great information from a world-class book editor, Barbara McNichol.

– Anita Paul

Barbara’s Word Trippers material should be in everyone’s back pocket. It is a quintessential reference for those words that can stump us with their
appropriate use. Highly recommended.

– Mary Shaefer

Barbara has gathered all those tricky words, so easily confused—bring/take, then/than, lay/lie—to assist the writer in using the correct word. Authors as well as learners of English, creative writing, and
journalism would do well to keep this book within reach at all times.
