Guy Kawasaki even has publicly admitted that no matter how many times you read your book or how many editors review it, chances are there will be a few errors that you miss. It’s one thing to have a few errors here and there; it’s a completely different one to have a book trifled with obvious grammatical errors. One of the biggest challenges for people who are writing books and who didn’t go to writing or journalism school are words that sound alike, but have very different meaning. The reality is that if you want to use a book as way to boost your authority, credibility and influence, you’ll want to be careful of grammatical errors because they could turn off your audience.

Hi, what a great post and so important. I didn't know about "blond" vs. "blonde". Had no idea that one was masculine and the other feminine. If I am in doubt of how to use a word, I look it up in the dictionary and that usually saves me.

Thanks so much for the info.

What a great list! Have to admit, I've been guilty of a few of these mistakes in the past. "Could of" is probably my biggest pet peeve.
