This book is an embarrassment to modern grammar and linguistics classes in college. A nearly 100 year old, 70 page book, written by 2 men who are not experts of grammar, is filled with redundancies and needlessly simplistic statements. Rules such as, "Don't explain too much," or, " Don't use needless words," don't need to be written down to be known by most college level students writing term papers. Their professors should already know this, and they should know this having had high school experience before then.

It's concise.
It's humorous.

It's articulate and persuading.
It's just handy if you'd like to write in English.
All in all, it's a must buy.

Made the mistake of reading the dated Project Gutenberg edition, about half of which can be disregarded. It's worth a read for any writer to brush up on some of the common rules of grammar. However ... Read full review
