A practical style guide to writing standard, edited American English, including grammar, best usage and prose style.

Originally written and published in 1918 by Cornell University professor William Strunk Jr, it was edited, updated and republished in 1959 by E. B. White, who had studied under Strunk in the years following World War I. Macmillan and Company in 1957 commissioned White to prepare this new edition of the book. Though Strunk had passed away, White independently built on his foundation to create a rare reference book that\'s also a literary classic. Strunk\'s version concentrated on specific questions of usage, cultivating good writing and avoiding prolixities: \"Make every word tell.\" White updated and extended these sections and added an introductory essay and the conclusion, \"An Approach to Style,\" a broader guide to writing in English. The standard reference for American students and writers.

Every writer/editor needs Strunk and White! I have another copy, which is the only reason why I'm getting rid of this one.

"No book in shorter space, with fewer words, will help any writer more than this persistent little volume." EXCELLENT resource.

This was required in my undergraduate journalism classes. I still use it today, 15 years later for business and school work. An excellent reference!

The essential Writer's Guide for everyday life. Concise, correct, easy to read. E.B. White was a noted essayist and author of highest caliber. Strunk I believe was the professor. This is a necessity for any educated library. And a great, cheap gift for the kid off to college this Fall.
