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

I left India in August of 1987, having lived there for four years. It was two weeks from the end of my Embassy assignment, and the only task left was to create an index for a celebratory coffee-table book on Indo-US relations. The manuscript was finally complete and I had convinced my colleagues that it needed an index. That meant I was ¿selected¿ to index the 120 page book. I had never indexed anything in my life, but as a librarian, I felt it would not be that hard, and besides, the computer people promised me they would give me a print-out of all the key terms in the book. My family had departed for the States, my former house now occupied by my replacement, and I had a room in a hotel. All I had to do was complete an index, and then join my family. It took me several hours of mucking about with the print-out to realize it was not useful in indexing. The USIS library there had a Chicago Manual of Style and I have never been so thankful in my life for its step-by-step advice on how to index a book. In those days, it was all done with handwritten terms on cards. The indexing chapter was spectacularly didactic, with illustrations and step-by-step commands. From dawn to late at night, I worked my way through the manuscript, and 60-some hours later, presented my boss with my first index. The book was printed, my boss gave the book to his boss, the Ambassador (who had dreamed up the idea) and the Ambassador gave the book to his friends in the Indian government. I flew home.

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).
