How to Speak and Write Correctly
This is a 1910 guide for those who wish to learn how to correctly (though maybe not "properly") create sentences, use figures of speech, write letters, and more, all while choosing the right words and doing it with style. Joseph Devlin's words may not all be relevant still today, but at least it sounds good when it's read aloud! (Summary by Andrew Lebrun).(5 hr 42 min)

it's a good book, but it wasn't what I was looking for.
Lots of typos/errors in comment section of a grammar book. ;)

laughed so hard when they said "YOU ARE NOT DICKENS" and "YOU WILL NEVER BE SHAKESPEARE " in the slang chapter. Who knows?
