Review of The Elements of Style

The Elements of Style (Original Edition)The Elements of Style (Original Edition) by William Strunk Jr.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I read the original edition (1918) which is in public domain now (one good and properly hyperlinked version can be found at

Three stars because much of advice regarding English usage in this book is outdated now. I am aware of the expanded edition by Strunk and White but even that edition is from 1959; I doubt I will gain a lot by reading it. However, I will not mind skimming it sometime.
