ITEM#: 10187912

The original edition of the most trusted writer's guide to American English, this is the book that generations of writers have relied upon for timeless advice on grammar, diction, syntax, sentence construction, and other writing essentials. In brief and concise terms, author William Strunk, Jr., identifies the principal requirements of proper American English style and concentrates on the most often violated rules of composition.
Originally published in 1918, this authoritative and engagingly written manual retains its immediacy and relevance. Strunk begins with the basic rules of usage, offering accessible explanations of correct punctuation and grammar. His advice on the principles of composition cites concrete examples of how to maintain clarity by eliminating redundancy and unnecessary embellishment. In addition, Strunk provides valuable pointers on avoiding common errors in the usage of words and expressions, and in spelling. The greatest book of its kind, this volume is a must for any student or writer.

  • This Is Actually Fun
    Verified Purchase

    Don't take everything verbatim in this particular edition of "Elements Of Style" or you'll be spelling "tomorrow" as "to-morrow". But it's still a good read, and I should have read it years ago - as required by my Prof in English 101. For information purposes - get an updated version. But this first edition is still a lot (not "alot") of fun! ~~

    Old, but one of the best, shortest, and simplest writing books EVER. "Omit needless words." I reference this book ALL THE TIME in my teaching, so I finally bought several copies to give to my students.
