From my Cannonball Read V review ...

That’s right. For my 26th book (halfway there!) I decided to finally read through this classic guide to writing. The copy I picked up is a special illustrated edition, which made me feel as though I were reading something more elaborate than small grammar and style textbook.

This book has been around for years, with multiple versions and editions dating back to the 1920s. It is a slim book containing six chapters that have been finely edited to provide the reader with just enough guidance to improve his or her writing without weighing him or her down with hundreds of individual rules. It covers grammar, composition, form, expressions, style rules and spelling.

You may be asking yourself why someone might choose to read this book cover to cover, as opposed to perhaps purchasing it to keep as a reference. I will certainly keep it as a reference, but I found that by reading through it I received a much-needed refresher on grammar rules (although Mr. Strunk and I disagree on what is commonly known as the ‘Oxford Comma’ – he uses it and I don’t). I also appreciated the composition and style suggestions. As I have been writing more this year – both for the Cannonball Read and for my own blog – I appreciate suggestions to help improve my writing. Mr. Strunk and Mr. White appreciate brevity and the willingness to take a stance on a topic when writing and I can benefit from incorporating both suggestions more often.

The most relevant lesson for me was woven throughout the book and mentioned in different areas: the lesson of clarity. Why try to sound fancy when fewer words would be clearer to the reader? Keeping both by message and the reader in mind should help me to improve my writing over time.

I recommend that you purchase a copy to use if you write often as well as if you write rarely; in both instances it is likely that you could benefit from style refresher. ( )

Re-reading it for the 4th time. I try to read it every couple of years. Classic, pertinent, perfect. ( )

I curl up with this book on the worst days; those horrible ones without standards or integrity. A well-written sentence is a comfort to me, and this book is full of them. Besides, it's hard not to smile when those sentences are illustrated by Maira Kalman, for whom "he noticed a large stain right in the center of the rug" is an opportunity to paint a delightfully macabre scene from a murder mystery, complete with cocktail-sipping onlookers.

A style guide can be fun to read! This version includes illustrations of selected examples - "somebody else's umbrella," or "Polly loves cake more than she loves me" - that transform a little style and grammar book into something more memorable. At times, the book was so funny I laughed out loud and begged my companions to let me read a passage to them. The little book is special indeed, and this illustrated version is delightful. ( )
