I wore a copy of this book out. Oh, sure, Strunk and White are a couple of dinosaurs, but they are dinosaurs who know a whole lot about writing well. In a world where people no longer know how to diagram sentences or parse verbs (to their detriment) it may be that this book is no longer considered useful. Perhaps, but when I look at the overwhelming amount of abstruse verbiage that I encounter on any given day, I long for the return of The Little Book.
