Description

Some acclaim for previous editions: "Buy it, study it, enjoy it. It's as timeless as a book can be in our age of volubility." -- The New York Times "No book in shorter space, with fewer words, will help any writer more than this persistent little volume." -- The Boston Globe "White is one of the best stylists and most lucid minds in this country. What he says and his way of saying it are equally rewarding." -- The Wall Street Journal "The book remains a nonpareil: direct, correct, and delightful." -- The New Yorker "...Should be the daily companion of anyone who writes for a living, and for that matter, anyone who writes at all." -- Greensboro (N.C.) Daily News "This excellent book, which should go off to college with every freshman, is recognized as the best book of its kind we have." -- St. Paul Dispatch - Pioneer Press "It's hard to imagine an engineer or a manager who doesn't need to express himself in English prose as part of his job. It's also hard to imagine a writer who will not be improved by a liberal application of The Elements of Style." -- Telephone Engineer & Management

Author Biography

William Strunk, Jr. first used his own book, The Elements of Style, in 1919 for his English 8 course at Cornell University. The book was published in 1935 by Oliver Strunk. E. B. White was a student in Professor Strunk's class at Cornell, and used "the little book" for himself. Commissioned by Macmillan to revise Strunk's book, White edited the 1959 and 1972 editions of The Elements of Style.
