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!
