I have just started The Artful Edit: On the Practice of Editing Yourself (it doesn't touchstone) by Susan Bell. Although I have only reached page 72, I have found three egregious typos: "traditon" for "tradition," "tick" for "tic" (spelled correctly a few pages later), and "infommercial" for "infomercial." Hmmm.

Bwahahahahahaha! Oh, I wish I had something clever to say, but I don't. The best I can do is, "maybe it's textbook and workbook in one."

As an aside, the subtitle sounds vaguely dirty.

Oh, that's sad. Perhaps she didn't edit herself and relied on someone else.

I'd demand my money back!

I would send it back to the publisher and demand a refund!
