Just for the Title Alone...

And that title would be: The Subversive Copy Editor.

I'd heard of this book a while back, but it looks like it's now out.

Reminds me of my old boss, Jan, who I learned a lot from.

One of her peeves that has now become one of mine: not using a hyphen when you mean to say "re-create" ("I re-created the entire project from scratch.") instead of "recreate."

But is the hyphen in "re-create" dying out? Say it ain't so.
