What the Pros Say about WORD TRIPPERS word choice guide

when to use peek or peak, and course or coarse. Like big rocks on a path,
I trip over how to use ‘lay vs. lie’ and ‘compose vs. comprise.’ That’s when I peek at Barbara’s Word Trippers ebook and get back on course.”
- Patrice Rhoades-Baum, copywriter, marketer
“From writing I encountered in the business world, I think everyone from
administrative assistants to managers and CEOs would benefit from Word Trippers. Gremlins can sneak in anywhere!”
- Peggy Henrikson, editor, author
