There are two books you can expect to find on the desks of most communicators.
One is a copy of the AP Stylebook, probably at least 10 years out of date and covered with coffee stains.
The other is a slender volume authored by William Strunk, Jr. And E.B. White: “The Elements of Style.”
If that second name sounds familiar, yes, it’s the same E.B White who wrote “Charlotte’s Web” and “Stuart Little.” For his part, Strunk was a Cornell English professor, according to a report by Poynter.
