If The Chicago Manual of Style is a little too expensive or unwieldy, or your needs are not quite so detail-oriented, this manual makes for a nice alternative. It's not a book about writing; it is a style guide, starting with punctuation, capitals, and abbreviations and culminating in typography, printing, and binding. Sandwiched between are chapters on preparing scientific material for publication, dealing with foreign-language extracts, and creating tables and graphs. Footnotes, bibliographies, indexes, and the editing process also get their due. A much-revised edition of Webster's Standard American Style Manual, this is a great resource for students, writers, and professionals alike.
Practical information on writing and editing. Comprehensive coverage of punctuation, capitalization, as well as forming plurals, possessives, and compound words. Covers all aspects of manuscript preparation, including guidance on design and production techniques. Also includes a Grammar Glossary.
