For a DIY _TW for Dummies_ equivalent...

pages title
85 Strunk and White, _The Elements of Style_ // 3rd edition
274 _The Microsoft Manual of Style for Tech Pubs_ // 1st edition
141 Williams, _The Non-Designer's Design Book_
500 :-)

Please note: Substitutions are allowed. This is only a DIY suggestion.
And I took out the pages of the index from each so that
the page number would hit 500.
