The Economist Style Guide is as essential to have and use as a dictionary, but is much more interesting.

This guide gives general advice on writing, points out common errors and clichés, offers guidance on the proper use of punctuation, abbreviations and capital letters, and contains an exhaustive range of reference material, covering everything from accountancy ratios and stockmarket indices to laws of nature, science and economics. Also included is a special section on the differences between British English and American English.
An essential book for anyone who writes reports, articles, books, letters or memoranda, The Economist Style Guide will enlighten, educate and amuse.
