This book is an essential part of any good library--but especially for anyone who writes, whether for business, school, or pleasure. It contains succinct but thorough advice on spelling, word usage, form, composition, and writing style. If you ever have trouble knowing when to use "lie" or "lay" (and you really want to get it right), then this is the book for you.

This is one of the finest books there is on writing. Clear, concise, and easy to read -- this is not your typical English text book. This book should be required reading in high school English classes. Originally published in 1935, it has been periodically updated and re-released over the years. Most of the information is timeless, and applies to all types of written work even speaking to an extent.

With so many people now writing publicly on the Internet, whether they be blogging, writing news articles, or just an e-mail to grandma, it is easy to see that there is a great need for more people to read this book.

This book was supposed to be used as a reference for my Composition classes, I barely used it. However several of my classmates loved it.
