In 1918 Willam Strunk Jr. wrote the "little book", The Elements of Style, which is now recognised by The Modern Library as one of the "top non-fiction books of the 21st century" (it ranks at 21/100).

The book is about style; getting to the point, not using unnecessary words, writing plainly.

The book was first printed privately, for use in an English Usage and Style class, but reprinted in 1920 and published as a trade edition.

Elwyn White, a student of Strunk, revised the Elements in 1959, adding a new chapter, An Approach to Style, and updating much of the material.

Since White's revision, the book has become known as simply Strunk and White.
