Publisher's Summary

What you need to know about grammar and writing as taught widely in colleges, high schools, and grammar schools wherever American English is spoken! William Strunk, Professor at Cornell, wrote his famous Little Book on good grammar and writing to simplify the subject for students far and wide. His famous motto was, "Omit needless words." This unabridged version follows this motto and can be listened to in just 60 minutes!
Minor edits have been made to conform to modern usage such as using gender neutral words as opposed to just "he" or "him," adapting to modern spelling usage, and similar small things which might be a distraction for a modern listener.
Sharpen your writing, clarify your thoughts, improve your grades, and get promoted with the help of The Elements of Style.

Short, Sharp and to the Point

At just over an hour, I've thought to made this a regular read every quarter. Think I got to this later than most, wish I'd picked this up years ago.

This book has to be read, not listened to

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

The book has a format that makes it hard for it to be converted to an audio book. With cross-references and emphasis on punctuations, this book has to be read in physical form.
