This one was suggested to me by Stephen Pinker (hmm - watch it,

Clear and Simple as the Truth, by Thomas and Turner, which includes samples
of different styles.  Superb.

The Elements of Eloquence, by Mark Forsyth, which explains an amazing
number of writing terms most of us never heard of:  zeugma, merism,
hyperbaton, tricolon, and 20 something others, all of which you know but
not by those names.  In his preface he tried to explain Shakespeare's

His other books are good too.
