    "Short, Sharp and to the Point"

    At just over an hour, I've thought to made this a regular read every quarter. Think I got to this later than most, wish I'd picked this up years ago.

    "A must have for writers."

    If you're a writer, and you want a no nonsense brush up on the bare bones of the tools you need, get this book.

    "Great help!"

    Listened to it in preparation for college English. Liked it very much. Deaver Brown does an excellent job of narrating.

    "Great book, bad narration"
    Any additional comments?

    The material here is great - a must for anyone who wants to write well.

    The narrator, though, is far too dry, he mispronounces words, and he entirely fails to make the language engaging.

    A book this fundamental to modern English prose deserves better narration.

    "Clear Instruction and Good Narrator"
    If you could sum up The Elements of Style: 60 Minutes to Better Writing & Grammar in three words, what would they be?

    The narrator is very professional and clear. He keeps the lecture at a good pace but it is somewhat difficult to listen to without a book. I suggest listening to this audio to brush up on your grammar only if you are already familiar with and are a fan of the original Strunk and White.


    Any additional comments?

    This audio is worth the price. I'm glad I bought it although it takes a lot of concentration if you are behind on your grammar skills. This is not for the novice. I would not suggest it to my students.
