It's printed. I payed $17.99 for this disaster. I'm finding an average of 1 typo every 10 pages. It's almost unreal, like it's planned and at the end of the book he's gonna come out and say, "See what happens when you have bad content, how crazy it drives you." Now that truly would be genius.
You know, I've noticed it more and more recently. It's like editors just don't do as good a job, or maybe they're hiring more people with less credentials? I don't know, but my home town news station is a weekly laugh because of typos in that little thing that runs along the bottom of the scren.
Our local news paper is an editor's nightmare! It would make for good exercise to have the local high school English class correct all the errors. LOL
I must admit that I have a proofer that reads all my hubs before I publish them. Most of the time she does a good job, but I have gone back and looked at some of them and cringed. Can we ever find ALL the mistakes?
But to actually publish a book that has typos in it is unfathomable.
Accurate proof-reading is becoming a lost art. People are in too much of a hurry to get things done and move on to the next thing.
Sometimes it's a case of seeing what you expect to see..you keep ignoring the same typo again and again, until someone else finds it.
Also, certain types of people are better at carefully sifting through details and finding fault, than others. It takes a clear head, and a keen eye to catch everything. Having an excellent command of the language and its' grammar and punctuation is a must.
