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 [2], whose 50th anniversary is ably celebrated today by Mark Garvey in the Wall Street Journal [3].  The second is Economical Writing [4], by Deirdre McCloskey.

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