Product description

Product Description

"This updated and expanded book is a 'must-have' desktop reference for writers and others who wish to produce a grammar-perfect final draft."

Elements of Style 2017 presents a collection of modern grammar, style, and punctuation rules to help you write well, self-edit efficiently, and produce a grammar-perfect final draft. It is suitable for writers, editors, proofreaders, college students, and employees in the workplace. In fact, if you write anything at all, you should have a copy of this writer’s style guide on your desk. It has been recognized as a modern, go-to writing handbook and is now a required textbook in some college courses at University of San Francisco, University of Minnesota, California State University at Fullerton, and University of Texas at San Antonio, among others.

This book is a major update to Strunk’s original Elements of Style, written 100 years ago. It was inspired by Strunk's grammar classic, follows the same point-by-point format, and presents grammar and style rules in a concise, easy-to-understand manner. The book includes many of Strunk's rules from his original edition, but omits rules considered out-of-date today. Elements of Style 2017 expands Strunk's book from 38 pages to 270, and presents a collection of 500+ grammar and style rules for modern writers, editors, college students, and others who are called upon to write a grammar-perfect final draft.

NOTE: If you are looking for Strunk's Elements of Style: Classic Edition, visit https://amazon.com/dp/B01N1W9UQM — This book contains the full text of Strunk's original work, plus editor's notes flagging obsolete grammar rules, additional grammar/style tips for modern writers, and a Study Guide for academic use.

In Elements of Style 2017, bestselling author/editor Richard De A'Morelli shares his 30+ years of experience as a senior editor and explains everything you need to know about grammar, style, and punctuation. Written in plain English, this book takes the headache out of great writing—and unlike most grammar books, it includes easy-to-follow examples. Read any chapter, follow the practical advice, and you will see an overnight improvement in your writing. Read a chapter a day, and in just two weeks, you will be amazed by the polished quality of your final draft.

Clear, concise writing is essential today. For an author, a well-edited manuscript may bring an acceptance letter from a publisher or agent. If you self-publish, it could generate positive reviews and sales. For students, an impressed instructor could mean an A grade; and in the workplace, a well-written report could mean a pay raise, a promotion, or the success of a business venture.

● Writers of all skill levels will discover quick and easy ways to recognize and fix grammar, style, and punctuation errors in their manuscripts.

● Students can use these rules to edit and polish book reports, essays, and other homework.

● Teachers can use this handbook to help students learn grammar and punctuation rules without the tears.

● Employees can follow these simple guidelines in the workplace to produce well-written reports, brochures, and other materials.

Learn how to improve your grammar, style and punctuation, and polish your writing to perfection with Elements of Style 2017.
