The Economist Style Guide: 9th Edition Hardcover – August 1, 2005
“The Economist Style Guide is packed with good sense.”
“All manner of excellent advice, steering effortlessly down the narrow path between purism and pedantry.”
"Think of this book as a doctor for writers. If you are responsible for writing anything for your business from a flyer to a 100-page report, from a two-minute sales pitch to an after-dinner speech, then I cannot recommend this book too highly."
"Hone your written skills with the aid of this invaluable guide."
—Good Book Guide
“Indispensable. The best guide of its type.”
"This is one of the most erudite, understated and witty companions to the journalist's trade that I know."
-Michael Williams, Independent on Sunday
"Entertaining and useful."
-Jeremy Lewis, The Author

In the Guide's own style:
Grammar, punctuation and vocabulary are important, for sure, but once you have mastered those, why not spend a few more hours dedicated to polishing a bit your written English? With just 160 pages, you get tips that will make your writing look formal, but not stilted; correct, but not pretentious. You may even have a laugh or two with the entries.
