This is the book that generations of writers have relied upon for timeless advice on grammar, diction, syntax, sentence construction, and other writing essentials. In brief and concise terms, author William Strunk, Jr., identifies the principal requirements of proper American English style and concentrates on the most often violated rules of composition. Originally published in 1918, this authoritative and engagingly written manual retains its immediacy and relevance.

A must-have for any student or writer, it offers accessible explanations and concrete examples.
