The Elements of Style is a style guide for writing in the English language. A timeless classic, this book was written by William Strunk almost a century ago, in 1918. The book had continued to be a handy reference for writers through the years, and provides guidance through very easy to understand principles.
One of the timeless messages of the book is to omit needless words – make every word tell.
It takes the reader through rules of usage, composition, form, and style. A must read for all serious writers.
