So I am fickle and judged the book by its cover. It happens. It turns out that it's about WRITING style! Ha! So I sat on the jetty with my legs dangling over the water and the bridge from Oakland in the distance. And my life was quite literally transformed. I studied engineering at university and was never formally educated in writing style. This book laid out the rules with inimmitable lucidity. It's a small book, with limited words per page accompanied by lovely pictures. Yet it packs more in that space than you might imagine. Of course, that's the whole message in the book ... omit needless words!
My emails became shorter yet clearer, my writing improved in general; and I became a bit of a fussy reader! In general I was given the tools for the job (I didn't actually know what a semi-colon was before this!).
I mentioned it to the friend I was visiting in San Fran. 'Oh yeh, we all get recommended that at Columbia'. It turns out this is an absolute classic. I totes agree!
However, I must add that the fourth edition (the one that doesn't have any illustrations) is more handy; it's pocket-sized—not larger than your Phablet!
Quality and Quantity: Illustrated version1:0Non-illustrated version (as it doesn't have any illustrations and is small in size)
In terms of content: both are equivalent; word count is almost same as Index is same.
About the book: Simply, the Best.
