Product description

Review

"...a marvellous and timeless little book... Here, succinctly, elegantly and without fuss are the essentials of writing clear, correct English."

John Clare, The Telegraph

From the Back Cover

Some acclaim for previous editions:

"Buy it, study it, enjoy it. It's as timeless as a book can be in our age of volubility."
The New York Times

"No book in shorter space, with fewer words, will help any writer more than this persistent little volume."
The Boston Globe

"White is one of the best stylists and most lucid minds in this country. What he says and his way of saying it are equally rewarding."
The Wall Street Journal

"The book remains a nonpareil: direct, correct, and delightful."
The New Yorker

". . . Should be the daily companion of anyone who writes for a living, and for that matter, anyone who writes at all."
Greensboro (N.C.) Daily News

"This excellent book, which should go off to college with every freshman, is recognized as the best book of its kind we have."
St. Paul Dispatch – Pioneer Press

"It's hard to imagine an engineer or a manager who doesn't need to express himself in English prose as part of his job. It's also hard to imagine a writer who will not be improved by a liberal application of The Elements of Style."
Telephone Engineer & Management

Yes, it may not be a gripping read. Let's face it, what book about grammar rules ever was, eh? However, it's undeniably one of the best guides out there - easy to access, quick to flick through, good to have to hand whenever you want to find out about a particular use of comma etc.

A must-have for professional writers, or those who just want to brush up on their writing skills.

Packed with just the advice. No chitchat. Strong advice for many writing areas, still as relevant today as when it was first published.

I bought this after reading Stephen King's book on writing. Just wish I had found it years ago. It is a real GEM. Every home should have one. If you haven't got a copy - buy one.

I'd wish I'd been given this when I started writing in school. Truly a gem that should be on everyone's bookshelf.
