A publisher in Taiwan realized the book's value and released an edition in Chinese. This was soon followed by a Korean version published in Seoul.
All three editions are now available through this home page.
When the book was first accepted in Japan, Managing Editor K. Shimomura said, "This book answers all the questions I never knew where to find the answers to."
Other notable comments about Writing Modern English
- Americans have Strunk & White's Elements of Style
by their side when they write, but for me, Writing Modern
English is the perfect desk companion. We now have
a guide that clearly explains the rules.
T. Yamazaki, businessman
- This book is clearly superior in its construction, comprehensibility
of explanations, and appropriateness of examples. I strongly
recommend it to English teachers, university students, members
of the business community, and anyone else with an interest
in written English. English Teacher's Magazine, Professor
K. Fukui, Gifu Women's University
- An essential book for people who want to write clear,
precise, and concise English. Among the most important books
to appear in recent years. No book has provided such an
exhaustive explanation of the basics of writing English.
Y. Fukuda, President, PAO Communications (translation
- A good English handbook should do precisely what this
book does well: Make it easy for students to understand
the problems involved in writing correct English and teach
them how to correct these problems. Henry F.
Salerno, professor emeritus of English, State University
of New York
