Product description

Review

“[The sixteenth edition] is nothing if not acutely digitally aware. . . . Efficient, intuitive navigation and searching are the hallmark of CMS 16 online.”—Charles M. Levine, "Copyediting
"
--Charles M. Levin"Copyediting" (10/01/2010)

“Bound, famously, in orange and thicker with each new edition, the 104-year-old reference classic has kept watch over the publication of hundreds of great books and thousands of not-so-great ones, an arbiter and aide-de-camp for editors trying to decide how to handle items in a list, punctuation within quotes or, these days, the proper hexadecimal code for the German double low-9 quotation mark (201E, as you probably suspected).”—Steve Johnson, "Chicago Tribune

"--Steve Johnson"Chicago Tribune" (09/01/2010)

“This iteration has a jacket the calming shade of a robin''s egg or one of those old Mac screens, and you can imagine a weary copy editor cooling her tired brow against it. It has about a hundred more pages than the fourteenth and a crisper font.”—Ed Park, "Bookforum"

--Ed Park"Bookforum" (11/15/2010)

“"CMS" is marked by unfaltering good sense; and a good index and numbered paragraphs make it easily navigable. . . . Such is the book’s scope that it addresses itself to everything from the most straightforward conventions of layout . . . to submission requirements for authors and broader concerns such as editorial judgment.”—Catharine Morris, "Time Literary Supplement"


--Catharine Morris"Times Literary Supplement" (11/12/2010)

"The 16th edition has been restructured for digital publishing, making it more relevant, and has stopped waffling on many rules, making it easier to use. If you already use CMS, I'd strongly urge you to update to the 16th edition. It's not a small update, and it just may resolve many of the issues you've been dealing with."--"The Writing Resource
"""--Erin Brenner"The Writing Resource" (09/02/2010)

"For over one hundred years, "The Chicago Manual of Style" has been setting and defending stylistic standards. In a world where we often communicate with just our thumbs and publish our thoughts from 30,000 feet in the air, we need something to ground us, to solve the little problems, to give us answers we never knew we needed, and to make us beam (or scream) with solutions to the dilemma of the omitted antecedent of a relative pronoun."
