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.

I should have had a closer look at the contents. It's a handy guide to have with you always. I was hoping to replace my paperback copy but that will remain on my bookshelf. This is only Strunk's section. The original basic "little book". It is still a very useful guide.

This book was originally published a gazillion years ago. B&N needs to provide complete publication information, including such really important things as the Edition number. Publication date does not really tell one anything as it could be a reprinting or the date a really old book was published as an eBook.

The Elements of Style is a "must" for writers. It is informative, highly readable, and witty. This scan is a major disappointment. Entire words and lines are missing, and there are misspellings galore. All this adds up to frustration and confusion. Explore paid options, or buy the book -- as a book.

An outstanding manual of style for writers of essays or books, fact or fiction; well-written; easy to follow; unfortunately no index

This is the best book ever on writing. It remains at the top for a reason. Wonderful for everybody, not just teachers and students. I have both print and Nook editions of this.
