This manual alone won't make you a bestselling author. In fact, certain divine writers break every rule in the book. (I'm talking about Heimito von Doderer.) But The Elements of Style can help you find your own. Highly recommendable for students and mediocre writers.

5.0 The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr., E.B. White
There are many, many books out there giving advice on writing. But if I could have only one book, this would be it. The language is a little dated, but for me that is part of the charm. I constantly read and reread this book to find ways to improve my writing.

I did not like this book. It is pretty much entirely one man's opinion on how one should write. I agreed with him here and there, but for the most part, he kind of got on my nerves. I liked the chapter by White better than those by Strunk. White doesn't sound so old and crotchety. This would be fine...

Every writer should read this. It's short and sweet, but you'll still get something out of it in addition to the joy of checking it off of your To Read list.
