The Associated Press Stylebook 2016 and any version of The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th Edition. This book is written in plain, everyday english and is a wonderful part of any library on English grammar. I love the humor and how the text is interspersed with clever quotations and humorous. Buy this book with a few professional resources to get a complete coverage of the English language.
While there are more expansive books on grammer and style out there, I suspect that this book, for most folks, will cover 99% of such questions likely to arise in composing business letters, personal correspondence, and creative works. Concise, well-organized, and palatable, this compact volume stays in my brief case everywhere I go, and has often shaved points off of my blood pressure during those numerous times when I thought I knew how to do it right, but just wasn't sure. (One minor complaint: earlier editions were available in spiral-bound versions; I miss that feature.)
