I love the elements of style. There are several versions. I started with a book about the elements of style and how it came about. Now I have three different versions of the elements to include a copy of the original. It is relevant, easy to use, and has re-improved my writing which had gotten lazy over the years. It is also helping me to leave behind work- place lingo and shortcuts and return to proper grammar. If you want to improve your writing and alter your writing style this guide is the one to have.
