Want to Write Well? Start by Reading these Books

Word for word, these are two of the most useful books I’ve ever read.

The first is Strunk’s & White’s Elements of Style, whose 50th anniversary is ably celebrated today by Mark Garvey in the Wall Street Journal.  The second is Economical Writing, by Deirdre McCloskey.

Writing bad is something too many people do up with which neither of these authors will put. 😉
