Books on Copyediting and Proofreading

I have Copyediting and Proofreading for Dummies. Are there any other good books about this subject

I've been a professional editor for 28 years and I never heard of this author. A look at the TOC is unimpressive.

For a general book, look for The Copyeditor's Handbook by Amy Einsohn. She is well respected in the profession.

What is it that you are wanting to learn from these books?

And you can pick one up for a quarter from Amazon. I'll try it out.
