Style. Toward clarity and grace. Joseph M. Williams. 1995. ISBN 0226899152. A very good handbook to better writing. A very useful addition to Zissner’s On Writing Well. I expecially enjoyed the references to good writing that tended to break the rules, while still showing that they author knew all the “rules”. If you feel that your concise albeit clear writng is tends to being boring, this book will to help you add interest and style to your work. Not a light read, it is more useful to you if you have some work that you wish to edit at hand.
