"Charming and erudite . . . The wit and insight and clarity he brings . . . is what makes this book such a gem." --Time.com Why is so much writing so bad, and how can we make it better? Is the English language being corrupted by texting and social media? Do the kids today even care about good writing--and why should we care? In this entertaining and eminently practical book, the cognitive scientist, dictionary consultant, and New York Times-bestselling author Steven Pinker rethinks the usage guide for the twenty-first century. Using examples of great and gruesome modern prose while avoiding the scolding tone and Spartan tastes of the classic manuals, he shows how the art of writing can be a form of pleasurable mastery and a fascinating intellectual topic in its own right. The Sense of Style is for writers of all kinds, and for readers who are interested in letters and literature and are curious about the ways in which the sciences of mind can illuminate how language works at its best.

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 a 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. The numbers of the sections may be used as references in correcting manuscript. The book covers only a small portion of the field of English style, but the experience of its writer has been that once past the essentials, students profit most by individual instruction based on the problems of their own work, and that each instructor has his own body of theory, which he prefers to that offered by any textbook.

Before there was Strunk and White, there was just Strunk, Jr. Originally, Strunk produced his style guide for use in his own classes. But in 1920, the book was published and made available for wider use. Since 1920, many editions and revisions of "Elements of Style" have been produced, most famously enhanced by E.B. White in 1959. Still, sometimes its nice to have the original. Sometimes its nice to see how it all began. For people who resonate with that, this edition, a carefully reconstructed facsimile edition of the one published in 1920, will be a true treasure. Note, this edition is NOT an 'optically character recognition' (OCR) scanned edition. It is a high quality facsimile. Nonetheless, the reader should be aware that as facsimile it will contain both the glories and the imperfections of the original.
