The elements of style


You know the authors' names. You recognize the title. You've probably used this book yourself. This is The Elements of Style, the classic style manual, now in a fourth edition. The revisions to the new edition are purposely kept minimal in order to retain the book's unique tone, wit, and charm. A new Glossary of the grammatical terms used in the book provides a convenient reference for readers. The discussion of pronoun use is revised to reflect the contemporary concern with sexist language. In addition, there are numerous slight revisions in the book itself which implement this advice. A new Foreword by Roger Angell reminds readers that the advice of Strunk & White is as valuable today as when it was first offered. This book has conveyed the principles of English style to millions of readers. Use the fourth edition of "the little book" to make a big impact with writing. Hide synopsis

Still the best

This is the premier authority for matters of prose style. The service in ordering, shipping and receiving was first class. Keep up the good work.

If you don't know how important this book is, far be it from me to tell you...just read it.

Excellent Primer

by SWIDE Founder on May 20, 2011

Useful guidelines for elementary rules of usage; elementary principles of composition; simplistic orientation to matters regarding form; commonly mis-used words & expressions; and approaches to style.
