No E.B. White Section

This book DOES NOT include the addendum by E.B. White, "An Approach to Style," even though the description includes it in the contents listing.

    Great book. Pathetic excuse for a sample.

    At $3.99 this is staple of the writer's toolkit is undoubtedly a necessity. I've probablty replaced it twice in my years of writing, classes, etc. I was, however, incredibly underwhelned at the paltry, completely worthless sample that was offered up, especially for the newcomer... A table of contents, an intro, and a few pages does not a sample make, gentlemen.
