And here is what the cover of any edition of The Elements of Style is not supposed to look like:
Createspace Independent Publishing Platform has been publishing this book since 2015. I have to tell you though: reading this book will not improve your sexual prowess in the bedroom. The cover has nothing whatsoever to do with the contents of the book. I did, however, verify that this book is a reprint of the 1918 edition of The Elements of Style. And William Strunk Jr. was the author of this book. But I believe he would turn in his grave if he got a peek of this cover.
This particular book has received six reviews on Amazon:
1. Four Stars:
I bought this book as a reference book and it works just fine that way. I found its "plot" predictable, its "mood" thoughtful, its "pace" steady, and its "characters" developed. It lacks suspense. But it does have STYLE.

Note: There are 55 pages in this book.
6. Four Stars:
Informative. Dry. For scholarly individuals. Not sure I'd recommend this to anyone except for high school or early college students. You should definitely know what's in the book, but I'd rather stick to the internet because I think I'd find many more references and examples. The book is a bit limiting.
