Personally one of the best writing books I have ever found is called "The Elements of Style" by Strunk and White. This is a classic on basic grammar and writing skills. It is short, direct, and packed with great info. I was introduced to this book in college and have kept it all these years and even replaced it when my college copy wore out.

I just bought "The Chicago Manual of Style" about a week ago and have been thoroughly impressed with it. I had 3 question and it was simple enough to find the answers. Well organized with good examples. On the negative side, it is a bit pricey, about $50 Canadian.
