    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.

    Does not include the Approach to Style section

    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.

    bad scan

    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.

    What Edition is this?

    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.

    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.

    Don't get the free version. Much better

    Really just the basics of puntuation and writing structure. I've already learned something I mess up all the time... or at least I suspect that I do. Very easy to understand, doesn't have the typos that the project gutenberg version has, and you don't need the more modern examples from the 2011 version. Punctuation doesn't change whether you're talking about the beetles or vaudeville. This version says it's 2010, so if there were any changes last year theres probably no one following them yet.

    A classic must have

    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.

    Cannot read any of the small type

    Lots of examples..cannot read any of them...even with magnifying glass or moving to grossly enlarged type. This is disappointing.

    For every writer out there

    This little book is a must. Short and sweet it recaps common grammar and all punctuation in an easy to understand and apply format. The author makes it a fun read as well using humor and sarcasm to ease writers. I love the chapters on brevity in writing.

    Greatest learning tool available

    Years ago an English writing teacher required this book as part of her basic curriculum and it changed my life. This small book took my writting from poor to outstanding in a matter of weeks. I recommend this short guide to anyone who needs to write a sentence for any reason.
