The information presented is concise, to the point, and easy to understand.

I use Strunk and White both in writing and in teaching writing, as well as Zinsser's On Writing Well.

One day, if I have time, I will go back to this book and see how much my writing has been improved.

You are not getting Strunk & White's The Elements of Style. You are merely getting the 1919 version of The Elements of Style -- before E.B. White improved it. And who the heck is William Strunk, Jr.? That is an ingenuous claim. Strunk's son did not edit nor annotate The Elements of Style.

If you're happy with just the 1919 version, get the FREE Kindle version, not this bogus one. Save your money.

I'm a huge fan of Strunk and White's "Elements of Style," however, this is not the Strunk and White edition. This is simply a digitized-for-Kindle version of the original (Strunk only) edition.

There's a reason that college classes across the country use the Strunk and White edition--it is simply better.

I was disappointed to find out only after purchasing the book that this Kindle edition of The Elements of Style is not the one that was revised by E. B. White.

That issue aside, it is not clear what literary contribution has been made to the original text by the editor in this edition.

The book sold on this page is NOT the 4th Edition of Strunk and White's Elements of Style. Nor is the "Look Inside" link correct. This is a public domain version of what appears to be Strunk's orginal book. The typography is not as described in the text. Comparative references to text in the "right column" and "left column" refer in this book to text in upper and lower paragraphs. Don't buy this book. Instead by the fourth edition by Longman Publishers.

Others have noted that this contains only "Strunk" and no "White" and you can find the Strunk online for free (as PDF). My issue was worse: A major section of the Strunk was missing. I'm not sure if this just happened do my download or if it's true for everyone. If you spot a problem with a Kindle book within 7 days, you are entitled to a refund. Just go to "Manage my Kindle."

The "little book" was recommended to me when I was a freshman in college, and I have recommended it to many, many college students whom I have taught. It is still apt and entertaining. This copy is a very nice one. Buy it - even though you are not a student and all you write is email!

This book is formatted horribly. Chapters start in the middle of a page the way sentences should. Sentences are broken up and choppy. It's a shame that a book meant to guide people on writing techniques is done this bad in Kindle edition. Hopefully Amazon puts one out that is done right, because this book is an essential one to own, and I'm tired of carrying around my beat up paperback copy.
