The Elements of Style

William Strunk

The Elements of Style has long been a valued and beloved resource for all writers. Hailed for its directness and clever insight, this unorthodox textbook was born from a professor’s love for the written word and perfected years later by one of his students—famed author E.B. White. Ever since its first publication in 1959, writers have turned to this book for its wise and accessible advice. “The work remains a nonpareil: direct, correct, and delightful.”—New Yorker
