There are three primary books on writing. "Writing with Style" by Trimble, "Elements of Style" by Strunk and White, and "On Writing Well" by Zinsser. In my opinion "On Writing Well" is the inferior of the three. He violates his own suggestions, he's a fairly self-satisfied writer, and perhaps with little reason. I would suggest "Writing with Style" by John Trimble.
