A World Without "Whom": The Essential Guide to Language in the Buzzfeed Age Reviews

    Review of format: The advance electronic galley copy of this book displays inadequately on both my Kindle ebook reader and Android phone. I believe that, unless the book undergoes a major overhaul, it will continue to do so in its final version. If you read using either of these gizmos, you may wish...

    John and Hank Green spent a third of a Dear Hank and John episode trying to decide how to spell the colloquial form of casual. Cash would be confused with money. Instead of a 17-minute discussion, they could have just asked BuzzFeed. In growing from clickbait quizzes asking “Which pie are you??...

    What a fun read! I enjoyed discovering the thought process and history behind BuzzFeed's style guide (because nerd!). Emmy gives an insider's look at the unique style issues that come up in BuzzFeed content. She also recognizes that BuzzFeed's style is not for everyone ("you do you," etc.), yet she ...

    I liked this, even as someone who can admittedly be a stickler about language and grammar, always has an opinion about the Oxford comma, and is not 100% down for the social acceptance of run-on sentences. Favilla covered all of these subjects and much more in her book, which is essentially a style g...

Emmy J. Favilla, BuzzFeed Copy Chief, in a fun-to-read manner, walks the reader through the changes but I s...

    Word nerds rejoice! Favilla's A World Without Whom is the nerdy, compelling, and hilarious guide to grammar/spelling/punctuation the world didn't know it needed (unlike the word "whom," which Favilla posits the world definitely *does not* need). This fast-paced read is filled with in-depth discussio...
