Summary

This book isn't long - 2993 words from Introduction to Conclusion. There's no fluff. The author is neither trying to keep you turning pages nor keep you entertained on a rainy Sunday afternoon. 
This book is all about saving you precious time - time that you spend looking up Google to choose the right words - when you're self-editing your writing, whether that's a blog post or a short story or a work of non-fiction. 
Some notes in this book may even remind you of blindspots such as the difference between "its" and "it's", between "maybe" and "may be", and between "loose" and "lose" - words that you don't even consider looking up because they sound just like you speak. 
You could read this book cover-to-cover in about 10 minutes, but if you pick up some useful tips from even just a fraction of the 48 notes, you will not only save a lot of time editing, but also improve the quality of your writing.
