My three favorite books on writing


Over the 18+ years I have been editing, I have read many books on writing. In this video book talk, I discuss my three favorite books:

  • The Elements of Style by Strunk and White,
  • Style: Ten Lessons in Clarity and Grace by Joseph Williams, and
  • Line by Line by Clair Kehrwald Cook (published by the Modern Language Association).

Following a brief overview of these books, I discuss my criticism with writing books in general.

This book talk is part one of five. Parts two through five discuss our writing books and resources.
