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.

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.

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.

Whenever I have a minute or two on the subway, I read a short portion of the book. It is an easy way to improve your writing skills which is so essential for business.

I feel strange giving this classic only four stars, but it's only for the ebook and even then it's only for the formatting.

It's really by now a history book, which I bought by mistake, thinking I was ordering Strunck-White. The strictures apply to the 1920s, and few newspapers or contemporary editors would follow it now.O
