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
