A good refresher if it's been awhile since your last writing or English class.

Although this book was first published in the 1950's, it has been updated through the years.

Essential reading for any writer.

Maria Kalman is one of my favorite illustrators, known for her work for the New Yorker. Her writing is at times both humorous and endearing. You will never forget the rules of grammar once you've read The Elements of Style as illustrated by Kalman. Two thumbs up on all her work.
