No enough information
I bought this book because I wanted to get rid of the paper version but I realised it did not have enough information. For instance, the Words and Expressions Commonly Misused section only had three words with the letter A, the book I have on the other hand, have 15 words with the letter A. Furthermore, it does not have another section call An Approach to Style.
About the editions…
• Editions where William Strunk is the sole author are based on the 1918 version
• Editions by Strunk & White ( E B White ) are based on the 1950's updated book
• Newer editions list additional writers
• While this text has been a mainstay for grammar resource, this book is not without its critics. Most feel that this book is now aged & ready for retirement
Excellent book; appalling description writer
It's simply amazing that whoever wrote the description of this book, doesn't know the difference between "its" and "it's".
