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").

Review: The Elements of Style

User Review  - Kate Weiskopf - Goodreads

I come from two generations of writers and being a huge grammar nerd, I loved this book. Now, I'm not a TOTAL freak and didn't read the whole thing straight through for enjoyment. However, I still find it very useful to reference while writing a paper. Read full review

Of all the books of it's kind, this is my choice for my own writing. I wouldn't exactly recommend anyone go out and buy it unless they write for whatever reason. Read full review
