What you need to know about grammar and writing as taught widely in colleges, high schools, and grammar schools wherever American English is spoken! William Strunk, Professor at Cornell, wrote his famous Little Book on good grammar and writing to simplify the subject for students far and wide. His famous motto was, “omit needless words.” This unabridged version follows this motto and can be listened to in just 60 minutes! This is the original Little Book, without add-ons by later writers. This is a treasure to writers because it omit(s) needless words and subject matter Professor Strunk did not believe was core to better writing. The brevity encourages relistening to deepen one’s knowledge of the subject, the point made by Professor Strunk to his students: “the knowledge comes from rereading” or in our case, relistening.
