Book Summary

"This book aims to give in brief space the principal requirements of plain English style."  --William Strunk, Jr.

"I shall have a word or two to say about attitudes in writing:  the how, the why, the beartraps, the power, and the glory."  --E.B. White

"William Strunk taught Mr. White English at Cornell, and certainly he had no more gifted and proficient a pupil.  It is a book to put alongside Fowler's works, and I can think of no higher praise."  --Dorothy Parker

"Buy it, study it, enjoy it.  It's as timeless as a book can be in our age of volubility."  --The New York Times
