Often called the “Holy Grail” of grammar by college professors, The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr. and E.B. White is an English writing style guide. This book on grammar takes the English language and breaks it down into rules of use, principles of composition, and matters of form.
Available on Amazon, it’s required reading for college grammar classes or a needed reference for academic papers. It’s great for both new writers and experts who want to master basic grammar rules.
It also explores commonly misused expresses and misspelled words in American English. In 2011, Time called this book one of the 100 best and most influential books written in English since 1923, so it is definitely one of the best grammar books around.
“The mind travels faster than the pen; consequently, writing becomes a question of learning to make occasional wing shots, bringing down the bird of thought as it flashes by. A writer is a gunner, sometimes waiting in the blind for something to come in, sometimes roaming the countryside hoping to scare something up.”
