Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Elements of Style (Taschenbuch)
When I read comments about this book my expectation was to get very big manuscript about style with a lot of heavy theory about what and how to write in English better. When I received my parcel it was surprisingly small book in term of size and even more surprising in term of content.
It is so rich of very concise and valuable advices and suggestions. No doubts, it is written by master. The way how it is written makes reading a pleasure. Even reading so "dry" by its nature subject it conveys a lot of insights about how we read, how ideas can be crisp, short and in the same time extremely powerful in bringing author's thoughts, ideas to someone he or she might not now about, who can be far away and in the same time can be touched by author's emotions. It touched me; I could feel the voice of the waves, heat of the sun and song of someone from the mountains. And each of these small stories was not more than couple of lines, but so rich, so powerful in its impact.
Book has a lot of examples and suggestions, and how and when they are written you can feel, envision each small detail of the story told in these examples.
