"The Elements of Style has been restored to the world of letters because of its tested usefulness in helping people to write effectively and well.

This part of the book is concerned with attitudes in writing, with Mr. White's personal list of "do's" and "don'ts" and with style as the mark of the writer." --dust jacket.
