samskivert: The Elements of Style – Strunk and White (4)

03 December 2000

If you ever form words into a sentence with the intent of their being read by another individual, read this book. Seemingly every instance where writing has rubbed me the wrong way as a reader is tidily addressed in Elements explaining why it’s bad style and how to remedy it. On top of that, the authors live by their own rules and manage to find room for a liberal dose of humor that make this literary medicine go down that much easier.
