Now for the book. The size of the book surprised me for a while but I had read, in Stephen King's Memoir on Wiritng included, that this tiny book serves as a starter for every serious writer. And it's just that. Right from cutting out unnecessary words to punctuation, to principles of composition, this book will provide you the basic tools for writing as a novice writer.
I intend to keep this book handy whenever I write and that says a lot about how good this book is because I HATE self help and how-to books.
The book has numerous spelling mistakes on almost every page.
Ex: "suspicions" written as "S!Spicions," "commonly" written as "comrrwnly," spaces are missing, or extra space between letters of a single word and so many more.
I am really disappointed and wouldn't recommend anyone to buy from this buyer at least.
I would suggest to go for hardcover and check it immediately if you received a good quality one. If not, return it. I got late as I checked the book after return window has been closed.

My hardcopy is back in London.
I'm locked down writing a novel in the Haiar mountains in the Middle East.
Solution: kindle copy of The Elements of Style.
If you write anything, whatever level, this must be on your book shelf (or in your kindle!).
