The impetus toward purchasing "The Chicago Manual of Style" came when a friend asked me to proofread her latest manuscript. I'm not an editor, but decided I'd take the time and work through it. Mind you, she had already paid someone to edit the manuscript. Needless to say, my friend was some livid ... at the editor. I've proofread Braille for many, many years and know a mess when I see it. My friend claimed that her editor knew "The Chicago Manual of Style" from cover to cover. Not very likely. I decided to purchase this reference to point out exactly where her editor had gone wrong.
This is an astounding reference that I found not only speaks to standard print media, but also to production and digital technology. With so many people moving to this format, it's critical that standards are set and followed. The demise of the book as we've come to know it isn't imminent, but why settle for mediocrity in the digital publishing world? I'm not an editor, not will I ever be one. If I need one, I'll know who not to hire from experience. Everyone who works in the world of words, or simply is wowed by them, should invest in this essential reference. If you have a choice of a single reference, this should be one you invest in.
The updated rules for numbers now allow me to toss the ancient GPO Style Manual kept handy for that (I work in science and technology), not to mention the new usage section covering most of the troublesome words means I'll be reaching for my American Heritage dictionary less frequently.
Well done Chicago! Thank you!
