English can be a language full of spellings that look right but are dead wrong. Toss in those infuriating sound-alikes (they're/their/there, its/it's, except/accept), which computer spell checkers usually don't catch, and it's no wonder that 99% of us are often embarassed and undermined by unwitting typos. . . If you have ever searched for a world in a dictionary and have not been able to find it or if you are at a loss about a word, good news: you've just picked up the book that promises to be the single most invaluable resource on your desk. . . 1001 Commonly Misspelled Wordsis organized phonetically, enabling readers to look up words without having to know how to spell them (look up, for example, illusive, and find the correct spelling: elusive) also packed with excellent memeory shortcuts ("there's a rat in separate"), 1001 Commonly Misspelled Wordsis a wonderfully painless solution to spelling maladies. Because when it comes down to it, the art of corret spelling is a crucial ingredient for getting ahead in today's knowledgeable - er, knowledgeable - world.
