Composition teachers throughout the English-speaking world have been pushing this book on their students since it was first published in 1957. Co-author White later revised it, and it remains the most compact and lucid handbook we have for matters of basic principles of composition, grammar, word usage and misusage, and writing style. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Buy it, study it, enjoy it. It's as timeless as a book can be in our age of volubility. -- The New York Times
The work remains a nonpareil: direct, correct, and delightful. -- The New Yorker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I purchased a used copy of this book as part of a graduation gift for my 18 year old nephew who recently sent me an e mail that shocked me since he is an honor student at his high school. For someone so bright his writing skills have much to be desired, no doubt in part due to extensive use of text messaging amongst teens (and some adults) these days. Though he's majoring in physics he will still have to take basic general education courses which will involve some degree of composition. He'll probably thank me after he gets the first C in his life in English 101.
