Rewrite Right! (Jan Venolia)

This is another book I'm reading for teaching/research purposes — wondering if I should adopt an editing text for my writing classes. If I do, it might be this book. It's brief, concise, and clear, with a lot of great examples and many useful lists. The problem is: will students read it? If I don't end up making this book a required text, I will certainly refer to it and maybe reproduce some of its lists. A great overview of the revision process with lots of concrete advice. (Although it suffers from a disease common to business books: being peppered with random, pithy quotes from some quotation book.)
