Elements of Style For Grammar Pendants

Certainly this point of view is worth reading for any writer who depends on William Strunk and E.B. White's Element of Style, which has had, and still does in many cases, a vice-like grip on educated Americans' views about grammar and usage. Yet, Geoffrey K. Pullum, in his The Land of the Free and The Elements of Style, claims almost everything they say on that topic is wrong.

The Chicago Manual of Style, Webster's, and a good thesaurus should always be on a serious writer's bookshelf, too.
