Description

The Elements of Style, Fourth Edition

By William Strunk, Jr.

The Elements of Style (1918) (aka Strunk & White), by William Strunk, Jr., and E.B. White, is an American English writing style guide. It is the best-known, most influential prescriptive treatment of English grammar and usage, and often is required reading and usage in U.S. high school and university composition classes. The original, 1918 edition of The Elements of Style detailed eight elementary rules of usage, ten elementary principles of composition, “a few matters of form”, and a list of commonly misused words and expressions.

Asserting that one must first know the rules to break them, this classic reference book is a must-have for any student and conscientious writer. Intended for use in which the practice of composition is combined with the study of literature, it gives in brief space the principal requirements of plain English style and concentrates attention on the rules of usage and principles of composition most commonly violated.

fairly good but not great

:
There are some nice things about this app, such as how you can search for a particular topic, but even the good elements have some strikes against them. For example, as far as I can tell, you have to search within each section for what you want, not the entire text overall. Also, the book is rather dated, such as saying that you should write tomorrow as "to-morrow." You'd probably be better off doing a google search for the grammar info you need, but it is nice having the book pretty cheaply on your iphone for quick reference if you can't get online or something like that.
