 Reviewed by Phyllis Zimbler Miller originally for Amazon
This little book is a must-have for writers who take seriously their word usage. Carolyn Howard Johnson's paired words are a fascinating look at the sand traps of American English. More importantly, her amusing advice on how to tell the difference between, for example, fissures and fishers is valuable for editors as well as writers.

I highly recommend this book.
