Hi! Anyone have any suggestions on a good book on writing and a book on grammar? I have read Stephen King's "On Writing", and though it was a good book, it wasn't quite what I was looking for. I am looking for a book to help me learn proper grammar when writing essays and business letters and such. Any suggestions?

Wow! I guess it is unanimous then eh? LOL

Thanks! If I remember correctly, Stephen King recommended this book as well, in "On Writing".

Guess, I'll be visiting Amazon.com.

Thanks Again!

There seems to be some parts missing in the online version, specifically the E.B. White contributions. The price of the paperback fourth edition is only $6.95 and it is a convenient thing to have. Well worth the cost.
