Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

You know the authors' names. You recognize the title. You've probably used this book yourself. This is The Elements of Style, the classic style manual, now in a fourth edition. The revisions to the new edition are purposely kept minimal in order to retain the book's unique tone, wit, and charm.

A new Glossary of the grammatical terms used in the book provides a convenient reference for readers. The discussion of pronoun use is revised to reflect the contemporary concern with sexist language. In addition, there are numerous slight revisions in the book itself which implement this advice.

A new Foreword by Charles Osgood reminds readers that the advice of Strunk & White is as valuable today as when it was first offered. This book has conveyed the principles of English style to millions of readers. Use the fourth edition of "the little book" to make a big impact with writing.

Review:

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

Review:

"White is one of the best sytlists and most lucid minds in this country. What he says and his way of saying it are equally rewarding." The Wall Street Journal

Review:

"This excellent book, which should go off to college with every freshman, is recognized as the best book of its kind we have." St. Paul Dispatch, Pioneer Press
