5.0 out of 5 stars It's not the same, but it's not bad
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 16 June 2020
I give this book a hesitant 5 stars. As someone else mentioned, there is a typo or two; however, it sticks to the ethos of good writing and the importance of grammar in one's writing.

The original was more succinct, but so much has changed in the written English lexicon, that I do believe it's worth getting this book. Note, I also use and review the updated AP guidelines. This version of The Elements of Style is not always aligned with the AP guidelines, but it's a matter of style versus hardcore grammar.

Yes, Stephen King references the importance of The Elements of Style, but his referent predates this updated version, and so he obviously could not have meant this version edited by Richard De A'Morelli; however, I still recommend it. Either version, you won't be harmed.

Long story short, get it. If you can afford it, I think it's worth the money.
