Back when I worked for a newspaper, one of my editors was trying to get a review of mine on a particular page, which meant he needed to edit a little bit out ... he came back and told me - I couldn't edit your review. Every word was essential. - YES. Thank you, Strunk & White.
Although I have not read the new version, the fact that reviewers talk about how wordy it is makes me question its value. the main focus of Strunk and White is that good writing should be clean and concise. Hence, if i recommended this book to my students, I would direct them to the original version
This is it. It's lightweight, and takes up very little room in a purse or backpack. This should be a required text for college freshman, or high school seniors as they strive to improve their writing. Clear rules for writing, backed up with examples.
