THE ELEMENTS OF STYLE: 50th Anniversary Edition

Editorial Review - Kirkus - Jane Doe

Privately published by Strunk of Cornell in 1918 and revised by his student E. B. White in 1959, that "little book" is back again with more White updatings. Stricter than, say, Bergen Evans or W3 ("disinterested" means impartial period), Strunk is in the last analysis (whoops "A bankrupt expression") a unique guide (which means "without like or equal").

How, I read The Elements of Style in college, but I was blown away by the article posted by another reviewer here that criticized The Elements of Style. It was an eye-opening critique, and I think people should be weary about the grammar lessons that The Elements of Style would have you learn.

I have a physical copy of the Strunk and White Elements of Style, so I'm a little disappointed that this is lacking the full 105 pages of the physical version. For 32 cents, though, this is still a good resource.

Apparently, this book is not universally loved by those in the business.
