5.0 out of 5 stars As advertised. August 21, 2011
By zaydia
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The AP Stylebook 2011. It is what it is. Great, useful book when working with any kind of writing. Has the "approved" abbreviations and spellings of many confusing or disputed words. Helps me be consistent with the rest of my organization.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another year, another style guide January 3, 2012
By Sid
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I buy one every year just for reference. It's handy and generally organized.
Buy the spiral bound version if you want to keep it open to one page/section. The binding on this one is too stiff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Writing With Style October 30, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Prior to purchasing The Associated Press Stylebook and Briefing on Media Law 2011, I wondered how the book would benefit my writing career. Since receiving the book I have come to understand the importance of consistency in writing. Capitalization, punctuation, numbers all need to be consistent throughout an organization. The Associated Press Stylebook is designed to show structure for a journalist.

5.0 out of 5 stars AP Stylebook -- Better Than Ever. November 3, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I used an older version of the stylebook when I was a public relations and media specialist with a major corporation, Now I am writing a book, and find the new version extremely helpful. It's too bad a couple of area TV news and spots reporters don't use it too. Pleased to see that Amazon has it listed. And why not?

I am a Transcriptionist and did not know that this book existed. I have learned so much and realized I had been doing some things wrong, but in time, I hope to improve my typing skills for my clientele.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have style guide for any journalist or writer October 5, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The AP Stylebook is the leading guide for journalists. It's the definitive style guide for most news sources, whether in print or online. They publish annual editions, but most of the styles don't change from year to year. That said, the stylebook has been growing in recent years, and you'll find this a thicker tome with more there. Copy editors tend to read this book cover-to-cover when they're fresh on the job, but it's mostly a reference book--a must-have reference for any writer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Investment Ever, but Kindle edition would be nice January 15, 2012
Format:Paperback
I am currently a journalism student and must say that this book has helped me immensely in my studies and work on my campus' newspaper. It is a great reference book for any question I have regarding style or spelling. I only wish I could buy this for my Kindle.
