Product Description

About the Author

William Strunk, Jr. (1869-1946) was professor of English at Cornell University. He wrote The Elements of Style back in 1918. He attended meetings of The Manuscript Club, which was "an informal Saturday-night gathering of students and professors interested in writing." There he met E.B. White, who would later revise and expand The Elements of Style and propel it to bestseller status. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
A little dated but still sound advice. Helpful for many I'm sure my age who went through formal education with little or no lessons on grammar syntax and the fundamentals of the English language.

Don't buy this version as the typesetting i appalling. BY this I mean the pagination is all over the place, which make reading it a bit of a chore. Find another professionally typeset version and buy that instead.

A good read if you wish to improve your composition. I liked the author's forthrightness, "downright bad English;". My review was too succinct therefore I have had to write this, please ignore.

If you have an internet connection and a brain don't get this. I can get better information from Grammar Girl. Get the original "Elements of Style" instead; it's much better.
