The adjective hasn’t been built that can pull a weak noun out of a tight place.
This book is a short masterpiece. Although it began as notes for a 1919 writing class at Columbia University and was first published as a book in 1959, it is still a standard for college writing courses. If you want to write with clarity and conviction, whether a quarterly report or timeless literature like Charlotte’s Web (yes, that E. B. White), this is the place to start. The first part guides you through basic usage, composition, form, and misused words and expressions. The second part makes this a great book. Here, condensed into a couple dozen rules, are what all great writing has in common, what makes it so clear, effective, moving, and to the point. It’s all you need.
