Este livro é muito citado em obras de escritores que falam da escrita. Muitos citam este pequeno livro, tão simples, tão prático, mas que nos enriquece com tantas sugestões de uma boa escrita.
O original é em inglês e, por isso, alguns casos seriam muito mais óbvios na língua nativa.
Considero que é um livro essencial para quem tem ambições a escrever ao nível profissional. Para todos os pontos abordados, tem exemplos concretos, como fica bem, como fica menos bem. É muito objetivo, seguindo as regras que sugere, poupar nas palavras, ser objetivo e cumprir a razão primordial: que quem nos leia nos compreenda!
Recomendo. Lê-se em duas ou três horas, mas é um apoio de cabeceira. Para consultar sempre que necessário.
