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 is the braille version of the timeless reference book. According to the St. Louis Dispatch, this excellent book, which should go off to college with every freshman, is recognized as the best book of its kind we have. It should be the . . . daily companion of anyone who writes for a living and, for that matter, anyone who writes at all (Greensboro Daily New). No book in shorter space, with fewer words, will help any writer more than this persistent little volume (The Boston Globe). Two volumes in braille.
Roughly 80 years ago, William Strunk wrote a small textbook for students in his English Composition class. He wrote it with the intention of creation a short and accessible reference for his students, one of whom - E. B. White, author of the children's classic Charlotte's Web - would revise it almost thirty years later for publication to the general college market.
Since its inception, The Elements of Style has been the definitive text on clear written communication. It contains explicit guidelines that can easily be followed by anyone, and lays down the law in the form of 22 Elementary Rules of Usage and Elementary Principles of Composition (my favorite of which, Omit needless words, I couldn't resist quoting in my own book).
Perhaps most importantly, from the perspective of the aspiring writer (who generally has neither an abundance of time nor money), the book is short (can be leisurely read in a couple of hours) and inexpensive (affordable for even the starving student).
This book is highly, highly recommended for anyone who considers taking pen to paper.
