Publisher's Summary

The Elements of Style has long been a valued and beloved resource for all writers. Hailed for its directness and clever insight, this unorthodox textbook was born from a professor's love for the written word and perfected years later by one of his students: famed author E. B. White. Ever since its first publication in 1959, writers have turned to this book for its wise and accessible advice.


What the Critics Say

"The work remains a nonpareil: direct, correct, and delightful." (The New Yorker)

Required Reading

If you think you know anything about the English language, you had better know this book backward and forward. It's every bit as wise and relevant today as it has ever been. I was somewhat curious as to whether this would come off as an audio book, because in my memory it was so intricately tied to the written word. Listening just broadened my respect for Strunk and White. This book is about language, by and for those who love and value it, in whatever form it takes.

Great Content - Horrible Narration

The content is great and I truly wish I could listen to it. After 107 audio books, I have heard a reasonable share of mediocre narrations, but this mouth-breather is untenable. I have been able to listen to other books that listeners have given bad reviews to the narrator, but this recording is horrible.
