Top Customer Reviews
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!

Pretty awesome for a second-handed book! Brand new and cheap, woo-hoo!Published on 3 Jun. 2015 by Mu, Z.
So very out of date. I should have looked at the published date much closer. Assumed it was relatively current. It is not. Read morePublished on 30 Jan. 2015 by Nicole F Nicholson
