The Elements of Style by William Strunk, Jr. "This book is intended for use in English courses in which the practice of composition
is combined with the study of literature. It aims to give in brief space the principal
requirements of plain English style. It aims to lighten the task of instructor and
student by concentrating attention (in Chapters II and III) on a few essentials, the
rules of usage and principles of composition most commonly violated."
