Overview

The Sixteenth Edition is available in book form and as a subscription website. The same content from The Chicago Manual of Style is in both versions.

While digital technologies have revolutionized the publishing world in the twenty-first century, one thing still remains true: The Chicago Manual of Style is the authoritative, trusted source that writers, editors, and publishers turn to for guidance on style and process. For the sixteenth edition, every aspect of coverage has been reconsidered to reflect how publishing professionals work today. Though processes may change, the Manual continues to offer the clear, well-considered style and usage advice it has for more than a century.

The sixteenth edition offers expanded information on producing electronic publications, including web-based content and e-books. An updated appendix on production and digital technology demystifies the process of electronic workflow and offers a primer on the use of XML markup, and a revised glossary includes a host of terms associated with electronic as well as print publishing. The Chicago system of documentation has been streamlined and adapted for a variety of online and digital sources. Figures and tables are updated throughout the book—including a return to the Manual’s popular hyphenation table and new, comprehensive listings of Unicode numbers for special characters.

With the wisdom of a hundred years of editorial practice and a wealth of industry expertise from both Chicago’s staff and an advisory board of publishing professionals, The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition, is an invaluable resource in this rapidly changing world. If you work with words—no matter what the delivery medium—this is the one reference you simply must have.

EarlB More than 1 year ago
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.  Earl B. Russell, Author Cold Turkey at Nine

The book's great, but I'm rather peeved at B&N for the way they shipped it. The box was unsealed at both ends, with the flaps merely tucked in; the book might easily have fallen out during shipping. There was some minor damage to the dust jacket, as well. How do they expect to out-compete Amazon with sloppy service like that?

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 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.

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.

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).
