The Amazing Adventures of Strunk and White

Via Daring Fireball, I see that it’s the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Strunk and White’s Elements of Style. For those who don’t know, the book is a rock-solid primer on grammar, style and punctuation. (American English, of course, but 90% is applicable to those writing in International English.) I recommend it to my undergraduates because it’s more straightforward than Fowler’s. Have a writer in the family? Why not buy them a copy of Strunk and White? They’ll thank you – in a beautiful turn of phrase.

  1. Ah yes, that’s correct. I am sorry I did not provide the link before, I wasn’t somewhere where I could easily find it. Now I am, so I came back, but see you got there first!
