9780024182005: The Elements of Style (with Index)

According to the St. Louis Dispatch, this "excellent book, which should go off to college with every freshman, is recognized as the best book of its kind we have".It should be the ". . . daily companion of anyone who writes for a living and, for that matter, anyone who writes at all" (Greensboro Daily New)."No book in shorter space, with fewer words, will help any writer more than this persistent little volume" (The Boston Globe).

Review:

Composition teachers throughout the English-speaking world have been pushing this book on their students since it was first published in 1957. Co-author White later revised it, and it remains the most compact and lucid handbook we have for matters of basic principles of composition, grammar, word usage and misusage, and writing style.

Review:

Buy it, study it, enjoy it. It's as timeless as a book can be in our age of volubility. -- The New York Times

The work remains a nonpareil: direct, correct, and delightful. -- The New Yorker
