4.0 von 5 Sternen Good But Limited, 20. Juli 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Elements of Style (Taschenbuch)
Strunk and White are great for a quick review of crisp style. However, they are not of any help for developing a complex style, making use of metaphor, or taking advantage of the new formats used in today's essays. The book is also not fun to read. For a hot read and to and muscle to Strunk and White's weaknesses see the Hoffman's book entitled Adios, Strunk and White.

5.0 von 5 Sternen LANGUAGE FRAUD, 14. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Adios, Strunk and White (Taschenbuch)
Since I am a fraud investigator, I especially enjoyed the "Scrub" section in Adios, Strunk and White because I have noticed the ways people perpetrate through their language usage and misusage. Also, the "Pause," "Fusion," and "Filter" sections of the book have made me more proficient at capturing the nuances of the cases I handle when I write my fraud reports. This book is a real treat!
