This updated 2017 Classic Edition contains the original version of William Strunk's The Elements of Style, and it includes a variety of enhancements which make this great little book even more useful. This edition is being used as a required textbook in a number of classes this fall at University of Minnesota, University of Texas, and elsewhere.
Generations of college students and writers have learned the basics of grammar from this short book. It was rated "one of the 100 most influential books written in English" by Time in 2011, and iconic author Stephen King recommended it as a grammar handbook that all aspiring writers should read.
Written a century ago, Strunk's book is a nostalgic link to the Art Deco era and the Roaring Twenties. Many of the grammar rules listed in the book still apply today; but over the years, these rules have begun to age.
