The Elements of Style, Fourth Edition
Part of the Elements of Composition Series
The classic manual for writing is now in its fourth edition. A new Foreword by Roger Angell reminds readers that the advice of Strunk and White is as valuable today as when it was first offered. A new glossary of the grammatical terms used in the book provides a convenient reference for readers.
From the Back Cover 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
