'Be short, be simple, be human.' This classic work is the quintessential guide to writing good clear English. Now updated in a new edition, but with all its original charm, it provides advice on everything from using the semicolon correctly to avoiding clichés and jargon. It is a vital resource for anyone who recoils from words such as 'operationalisation', and who wants to write in a storng, plain style. 'Vastly informative and indispensable.' Bill Bryson 'Who should read this book? Anyone who writes'.Russell Davies, The Oldie 'Wit, humanity and common sense . . . his central advice should be taped to the screen of anyone sitting down at a computer keyboard.'Michael Skapinker, Financial Times 'One of the most venerable (and, in some quarters, venerated) guides to good written usage.'Stefan Collini, Prospect
