    Ok guys, I just thought I would post this here because this book dramatically improved my writing skills (not that you would know by these forums.)

    It is called "The Elements of Style" by Strunk and (EB) White.

    It is basically a thesis on how to produce good, clear, concise, and effective English Prose writing.

    Any serious writer should read it at least once.

    You can find it at Barnes and Noble, Amazon.com, or almost any other well stocked bookstore you can think of.
