While drafting his historic Inaugural Address, President-Elect John F. Kennedy and his close advisor and speech writer Theodore Sorensen were guided by the rules of "The Elements of Style," now the most widely read and employed English writing style manual. Its simple, clear cut rules like omitting needless words and avoiding fancy words fit Kennedy's style of expression, and maintained the straightfoward tone he envisioned for his address. The new hardbound 50th Anniversary Edition offers the same content as the Fourth Edition, which was revised in 1999, and includes a brief overview of the book's history. Hardcover, 105 pages.
