Description

The Elements of Style by William Strunk, Jr. is an American English writing style guide. It is one of the best-known and most influential prescriptive treatments of English grammar and usage, and often is required reading in US high school and university composition classes. The original 1918 edition of The Elements of Style detailed eight elementary rules of usage, 10 elementary principles of composition, a few matters of form, and a list of commonly "misused" words and expressions. This book, printed as a private edition in 1918 for the use of his students, became a classic on the local campus, known as "the little book", and its successive editions have since sold over 10 million copies. This version is based on the public-domain text from 1918, which was originally uploaded to Wikibooks and wikified by Wikibooks: User: Lord Emsworth in 2003.

Poor reading of an excellent book

The Elements of Style remains an excellent guidebook and a reliable resource. However, this reading was marked by incorrect pronunciations and misplaced emphases. This is the worst Audible Book I have listened to.
This reading should be withdrawn and replaced by a reading worthy of the material.

Ok performance of a bad audiobook

This book is not suitable for the audio format; it is reference material with lot's of comparisons.
Not what I expected

Worst Performance I've Encountered

In fairness, it is probably better to read this book than to listen to it, given the nuances of punctuation and emphasis that are usually easier read than heard. However, I wouldn't know because I couldn't make it past about 10 minutes into this performance. To me a good performance blends seamlessly with the subject matter, but I found myself so distracted by the narrator's reading that I couldn't even take in what the author was trying to say. Avoid this one and read it instead.
