I used an earlier version in school and am happy to report that this 2004 update is still the user friendly and valuable tool it has always been. I purchased these for my communications staff after seeing too many simple mistakes in writing style. It provides easy to locate rules to follow and is an excellent resource even in this electronic world.
Anyone who knows anything about writing in the best style, knows this is the correct book to have! With new and improved rules, people can finally start capitilizing 'Internet!'
