Customer Reviews

This was quite helpful while taking a journalism course.

Along with a copy of The Elements of Style, The Associated Press Stylebook is a must for all kinds of writers.

I mean, you wouldn't necessarily be abbreviating state names in your writing, now, would you?

I bought this book because I had a client that used the AP Style in their marketing communication and all outgoing documentation had to be reviewed using the AP Style. Being a technical writer, I had not used the AP Style before. Now I have a better understanding of why words are used the way they are in a newspaper. However, about 20% of the AP Style does not apply to technical writing.

This was quite helpful while taking a journalism course. It takes a few minutes to understand the layout of the book to lookup things, but once you get it, it's easy.

I think this book helped raise me a letter grade in my course. Anyone taking a journalism course with a strict professor or planning on entering journalism should get a copy. My textbook had a reference in it, but it was quite small. With the low cost of this book, you can't go wrong.

If you're taking the course without an intent to go into journalism, check to see if you can use copies from the department first.

As a copy editor, I would be lost without the Associated Press Stylebook. It is imperative that I have access to prescribed and accepted standards for excellence in journalism, and the AP Stylebook helps me feel confident that I am adhering to those standards every time I pick it up.

Any writer needs this; any copy editor MUST have this. It will help keep you from looking stupid! Writing isn't for the careless.

I'm starting my third career (as a freelance editor); and this resource is the standard referred to by everyone. Great purchase, great price. (I had one concern, which this seller immediately addressed and resolved.)

I was expecting more of a list of rules on AP style, but instead it's like a glossary for the culturally illiterate.

I rated this five stars because I can't imagine a serious writer failing to keep it on his shelf and referring to it frequently, now that I have it. So many of the websites I write for use the AP Stylebook for editing that I, for one, cannot afford to be without it. It came in good shape and timely manner but I doubt it will remain that way. I will wear out its pages checking up on myself.
