    Writing a book - Thinking of epublishing or self-publishing

    Not only is this the "go to" manual for researchers, annotations, citations,bibliographies. This edition includes an additional grammatical section and all you need to know about formatting title pages, table of contents, and so much more. This is a must have for all writers.

    Most comprehensive informational style manual out there. I prefe

    Most comprehensive informational style manual out there. I prefer it's methods over the AP style, too. It's not perfect--I still have one grammar question I can't get complete agreement on--but it's the closest. I use it regularly.

    My publisher pushed me back to The Chicago Manual of Style after

    My publisher pushed me back to The Chicago Manual of Style after a career of writing under the guidelines of the American Psychological Association. I pored over the pages of the Chicago Manual for days as I readied my manuscript for publishing. 




    I found an unexpected pleasure in using the Manual again, rediscovering a sense of the familiar and a long-tested accretion of editorial wisdom and guidance. The Manual now sits among my most treasured reference works, just an arm's length away. 




    Several times I found the cross-referencing system, in my view, left something to be desired. Closely related technical details were not always where I expected them to be, or they did not address my particular issue at the time. Maybe this was my inexperience with the 16th Edition. However, I found the Manual indispensable.




    My advice to anyone who is about to write or is writing a book, get a copy now and prepare your manuscript correctly at the start. If I had done so, I would have had an easier time getting ready to go to press.

    Classic Reference Book

    Every writer should have a copy of this style manual. It has been indispensable for years, and now it has been updated to include changes brought about by the internet.

    Gold Standard - a must have

    I could have bought the smaller "Indexing" section, but why? The book is essential in writing properly. 100% of the book is there to answer questions you haven't thought to ask yet.

    I wouldn't be without it (and I have the 15th Edition).
