Got a great review on MEF today:
So many misprints in the book [MEF]. I’ll post the ones I’ve found soon. But this is ridiculous. For £20 we expect the book to be at least perfectly readable.
And the ones found?
Just two (which we already knew about).
On Page 110 “that” is printed as “than”, and on Page 113 there’s a space between “m” and “means”.
No problem pointing out misprints.
I will fix them before the second printing run…
… though honest, I don’t really care.
But this is where it gets good: this complaint is coming from someone who boasted their level as C2 (yet finds a book unreadable if it has two misprints) and with whom I had to have a lengthy (and frankly irritating) email back-and-forth because—get this—he wrote his own address wrong when he ordered.
Oh, the irony.
Funny thing is, nobody seems to have noticed the biggest (and dumbest misprint off all).
By popular demand MEF is now on Kindle.
Go here to get it:
Thing is, you’ll need to go straight to the back and register for the accompanying resource area straight away, because otherwise I won’t know you got the book…..
… and I won’t be able to send you the MEF owners emails.
Here’s the link again:
Language Punk. Typo King.
P.S. Am I proud to have typos?
Though I think only two is damn good going.
Thing is though, I’m a realist. It happens. Basically every book you ever read has typos in them. It’s a fact of life, because, hey, when you write something 200 pages long typos slip in.
I’ll also say I haven’t bothered to fix them in the kindle version.
Because I just can’t be arsed. If that bothers you, don’t get it.
