Reviews - What do customers think about The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr. & How To Speak And Write Correctly by Joseph Devlin - Special Edition?

Great Resource  Feb 18, 2008
I think this is a great book for anyone that needs help with grammar, I have it bookmarked in several places. It's an essential for all aspiring authors.
 
Concise reference tool  Aug 12, 2007
This book is a concise reference book stating plainly what is acceptable and what is not acceptable. Small enough to be read throughly, and yet broad enougn in its coverage to allow the reader to feel prepared for upcoming writing events.
 
Better Quality & Faster Service Needed  May 24, 2007

"The Elements Of Style and How To Speak And Write Correctly" arrived late along with numerous deficiencies. This inferior product omitted the glossary, index, edited out important examples and in general diluted the quality of this classic. How is any student and/or conscientious writer supposed to find information without an index in either of the books? Wrote a letter to the supplier regarding the above deficiencies--No reply after almost 2 months.
 
A Classic...but....  Mar 11, 2007
Of course, The Elements of Style is a classic and it's helpful to combine these two books into one volume but it would be better if a book on writing didn't have so many typos. This edition needs some serious editing.
