The Associated Press Stylebook should be on the desk of every writer, reporter, proofreader, copy editor, etc. All the accepted writing rules in journalism are included for general writing, sports, business, weather and more along with advice everyone should heed. The stylebook is easy to read and understand. I keep this book along with the new International Webster's Dictionary and Thesaurus, the Chicago Manual of Style and the Ultimate Visual Dictionary within close reach when writing. But the AP Stylebook is the first book I turn to when unsure about word usage and spelling.

Got this book for a class, but I actually use it regularly! Writing a news blog? Get this. Taking a newspaper class? Get this. Trying to break into Journalism for real? Well then you probably already have this book, but you should buy a second copy to give to a friend. Seriously, this is an important tool to have!

If you freelance for businesses, publication or even online, most editors will use this stylebook. Of course, be sure to ask about style guides when you accept an assignment and be sure to use it! I update my stylebook every two years and it is a must have for the freelance writing and editing that I do. Cooking terminology has finally made it into this edition which is a bonus for me.

AP stye is rapidly becoming the style for Internet writing, so this book is a must for anyone serious about creating written online content. The book covers the essentials of grammar, punctuation and word use as well as legal and ethical issues re: writing for the public.

I am a Journalism student, so I needed this book for a class and my career. It is a must-have reference book for any writer that wants to write articles or any journalist.

I was excited to get it. It felt like a right of passage. I was on to my dreams and my future. It is not like a big thrill to leaf through it; it is a much-needed reference book. It is one of those things that you will always have with you. I might make a quick tab system for myself.
I might also get a version for my tablet.

The internet is not a resource that can replace this book!!!!! Your Instructors and Editors will Frown Down Upon You if you get to a certain level of writing, and you did not consult this book when writing!!!!

If anyone has a tabbing system that works for them, I would love to know what you did. When I figure it out, I will share what works for me.

The Associated Press Stylebook is a useful reference. Arranged alphabetically, information is easily located. If your personal library already includes The Chicago Manual of Style, this is a worthy addition. The best explanation I have seen in other reviews describing the differences between the two reference books is: The Chicago Manual of Style is for writers of books...The Associated Press Stylebook is for everyone else.

The Associate Press Stylebook 2013 (Associated Press Stylebook and Briefing On Media Law) Forty-Sixth Edition by The Associated Press caught my attention due to my interest in wanting to understand some of the references pertaining to working in the career field of Public Relations/Advertising/Media. There are terms pertaining to the Mountain States, Movie Ratings, Movie Studios, MPEG-2, Ordinals, Cardinal Numbers (between pages 178-196). There are also terms such as Transportation Communications International Union (Headquarters in Rockville Maryland) page 274, The Washington Post Co, Washington’s Birthday (both on page 288), Issues concerning sources (page 336), a promise to a source creates an enforceable agreement (pages 337) and much more illuminative data.
