Format: Paperback
I have been using the Terabian style book for about ten years. Though Kate Terabian passed away several years ago, her legacy lives on in her style book. The book is well-organized, and covers every question I have ever had regarding punctuation, formatting, and style. The proliferation of examples is what makes it easy to use. I would recommend it, especially for serious academic writers, both students and teachers. The only caution I have is that a casual writer may find it too technical.

As a new graduate student I found myself overwhelmed by the requirements of the standard research paper. Having little knowledge of the proper way to reference and list bibliographies, I went to the local library for help. The librarian suggested Turabian's book. Needless to say I took her advice and brought the book home with me. I found this book to be an invaluable tool. So much in-fact that I decided to purchase a copy for myself. No student library is complete without this book.

Turabian's book has been an essential item on my reference shelf for the past fifteen years. It answers the most frequently asked questions about academic writing, but is much easier to consult than the weightier Chicago Manual of Style.

I bought this book last academic year as I have recently begun a PhD in 17th history at Swansea University. Although I have previously found university guidelines to be more than adequate for formatting undergrad and MA essays and other formal pieces of writing, a PhD is an entirely different kettle of fish!

I have found this book INVALUABLE - it is well indexed, easily searched and easy to flick through as well. It seems to cover every little bit of writing and every possible style convention within the Chicago style, plus a useful guide on approaching a writing project, helpful examples of writing styles and formats, and a list of useful tips on making the most of feedback/marking comments from tutors, plus a seemingly never ending list of formats for citations of all types of material.

I would definitely recommend that you buy this book for any serious writing project that will use the Chicago style, be it academic or otherwise - I have only had this book a few months and would already be lost without it!

This is a must for the college student or research paper writer. It gives line by line examples for how to correctly include footnotes, endnotes, etc. into your paper. I recommend it to all my students.

I wish I'd had this book at the start of my Doctorate - it is so useful in making you critically think and has lots of useful hints, tips and starting points. This is really good for when you're stuck and need to realign yourself. Harvard referencing is included as parenthetical style.

If you've been through a rigorous high school education, most of it is old news. It was good to get a confirmation that it works. A lot of good points in there as well, so definitely helpful.
