***WARNING! DO NOT BUY KINDLE VERSION***
The publisher has dramatically limited how much you can "copy" out of the text. Using the text-to-speech function on the Mac Kindle App apparently taps into this 'copy' limit. After the first chapter I can no longer use the the text-to-speech NOR can i copy any material out of the book. In other words, if you plan to cite this book plan on retyping whatever you want to cite!

This is an absolute infringement on my rights as a consumer. I paid for this ebook, I should be able to use it without limits on personal use! If I were to buy this book in print the publisher would not be able to limit how much I read out loud or in quiet, or if i have someone else read to me! Macmillan Education, if you are listening - please modernize your user limitations!!

This book is way better than the Writer's Reference that is required at both colleges I tutor for. This has become my professional "Bible" for citing MLA, APA, and Chicago styles, as well as the individual components involved in constructing a research paper. This book has helped me tutor students who are not clear on not only citing and formatting issues, but also transitions, annotated bibliographies, drafting outlines, introductions and conclusions, crafting research questions, and fine-tuning a thesis statement.

I initially owned the third edition for a writing class, and purchased the fourth edition for my own personal reference and professional tool. I will purchase the fifth and subsequent editions as they come avaiable!

Terrible eBook!!! the publisher has a very low "copy limit" that prevents me from using my Text-To-Speech on my mac!!! this is awful and should not be allowed... I purchased this title, its mine... how on earth can they seriously limit how i utilize what I have purchased?! The federal trade commission should investigate this terrible abuse of DRM!!!

The book was in good condition; however, there was no access code. I had to buy a new book because I needed the access code that goes with the book. The access code that comes with it was almost as much as the book ($5 difference). It would have been nice if this information was available in the description.

This is a required textbook for a graduate course I completed.

It was very helpful in the research and writing process. I plan to use it when conducting further research.

I never once used this book for my class, might not have even opened it. The Writers Reference has all that you need.
