I read this book at a pace that was understandable to me. I read about 75% and was good till a harder section came up that I read fast. The glossary was good also. I find the glossary useful as a reading text and not a reference in some books because the author(s) do lousy job and need further reading. Grammar of the Edit is a good editing book and being in second edition printed on very glossy paper shows I am not the only one that thinks so. I learned a few good things and some to learn better later. More of a handbook of editing with useful learning applications than a straight text about learning skills and does a fine job.
