Most people aren't crazy about this book but have to buy it because it is required- in other words, people buy this book because they have to use the format and style it discusses in order to write and submit a paper. Other than that, I don't know who else would go out of their way to buy this thing. It's thick and not thumb indexed the best. Other psychological books readers may benefit from include The Sixty-Second Motivator.

    If you're psycho about grammar and style...

    Use this book if you do a lot of academic writing (i.e. submit a lot of manuscripts to peer-reviewed journals). It's basically a big standard used in the industry and is the style manual of choice used by many professionals who do a lot of writing about research. Book includes things such as the latest guidelines for submitting papers electronically, guidance on grammar, the mechanics of writing, and lots of details such as how to use hyphens, dashes- well, you get the idea. Basically a very popular reference book used by professors and students, readers will also appreciate its thumb-indexing on the ends of the pages for quickly finding selected topics.

    A terrific resource

    As someone making the transition from writing academic papers to writing about the psychology of grief for a wider and more general audience, I am immensely grateful for the PUBLICATION MANUAL OF THE AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION. By the way, for a very interesting case study and exploration of grief I cannot recommend highly enough IN THE GHOST COUNTRY by Peter Hillary and John Elder. Beautifully written, innovative and very different.
