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.

Every writer needs this book in their hip pocket or Nook.

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.

If you have a few more dollars, buy a more recent version--the standard of excellence in writing style--for this original is slimmed down compared to more recent versions by Strunk & White. Either way, The Elements of Style is indispensable, a must-have reference guide for any reader or writer.

When are people going to get over this book?  It is just a collection of rules from decades ago.  It will no more teach you how to write than reading a list of ingredients will teach you how to cook.  There are so many better books out there.  Don't waste your time on this one (even if it is revered by generations).

Be Aware. I just received this book and there are several discrepancies between the websites 'overview' & 'product detail'. The 'overview' indicates there is a foreword by Charles Osgood - this was missing from my copy. The 'product details' on the web indicate the publisher was Independent Publishing but my copy was published by Singer; the publication date was listed as 2013 but my copy was 2010; the number of pages indicated was 70 but my copy had 64. The ISBN # on the web does match the ISBN# on the book I received; therefore, B&N cannot replace the book with the one described on their website. Barnes & Noble cannot find any book matching the detailed description on their website.

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

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.

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.
