Publisher's Summary

The Elements of Style by William Strunk, Jr. is an American English writing style guide. It is one of the best-known and most influential prescriptive treatments of English grammar and usage, and often is required reading in US high school and university composition classes. The original 1918 edition of The Elements of Style detailed eight elementary rules of usage, 10 elementary principles of composition, a few matters of form, and a list of commonly "misused" words and expressions. This book, printed as a private edition in 1918 for the use of his students, became a classic on the local campus, known as "the little book", and its successive editions have since sold over 10 million copies. This version is based on the public-domain text from 1918, which was originally uploaded to Wikibooks and wikified by Wikibooks: User: Lord Emsworth in 2003.

Ok performance of a bad audiobook

This book is not suitable for the audio format; it is reference material with lot's of comparisons.
Not what I expected

Poor reading of an excellent book

The Elements of Style remains an excellent guidebook and a reliable resource. However, this reading was marked by incorrect pronunciations and misplaced emphases. This is the worst Audible Book I have listened to.
This reading should be withdrawn and replaced by a reading worthy of the material.

Unintelligible narration- find another version

This version, narrated by Matt Montanez, is read in an awful robotic style, as though the narrator is trying to imitate a speech bot. Many words are mis pronounced, the narrator seems to not understand the sense of the words he is reading. Do not use this version, it is impregnable.
