We're big fans of Strunk & White's The Elements of Style, the "little book" used by the best writers. (Our favorite journalism professor, the late Tim Cohane, made his classes memorize and recite it, so important did he consider the book.) While there's much talk about a new illustrated edition, we find most useful the online version, which you can access here on the Bartleby website of language references. At don't get caught, our coaching, training and editorial services can help you to "Omit needless words!" or "be obscure clearly," as Strunk put it. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
