The Elements of Style, Third Edition by William Strunk Jr.


According to the St. Louis Dispatch, this “excellent book, which should go off to college with every freshman, is recognized as the best book of its kind we have”.
It should be the “. . . daily companion of anyone who writes for a living and, for that matter, anyone who writes at all” (Greensboro Daily New).
“No book in shorter space, with fewer words, will help any writer more than this persistent little volume” (The Boston Globe).

Editorial Review

Composition teachers throughout the English-speaking world have been pushing this book on their students since it was first published in 1957. Co-author White later revised it, and it remains the most compact and lucid handbook we have for matters of basic principles of composition, grammar, word usage and misusage, and writing style.
