Editorial Reviews


“(A) guiding light for almost all published writing in America today.”
, Boston Globe

“‘Chicago' is the rule of reason made flesh. It is belief in sensible authority and reasonable application thereof. . . . Everything is changing, but some truths remain steadfast, and they should be not merely online but at your fingertips.”
, Washington Post

“This manual stands as an indispensable and thoughtfully constructed English language and style resource for those compelled, by enthusiasm or responsibility, to attend to the minutiae of written expression.”
, Publishers Weekly

“As it incorporates contemporary examples (e.g., NOOK, Lady Gaga), CMS, as expected, offers sensible, clear advice on matters great and small for authors’ guidance—such as the treatment of names of ships and spaceships, use of the en dash, how to edit electronic manuscripts, and the ins and outs of documenting and citing works of many kinds. Just as the seventeenth edition reflects publishing changes since the 2010 sixteenth edition, the online counterpart, an inherently continuously evolving work, will be the version of choice for those whose libraries license it.”
-- A Top Ten Reference Book, Booklist

The Chicago Manual of Style is the essential tool—significantly larger and much more broadly based compared to particular discipline-centric styles—that has (since 1906) guided editors, publishers, copy editors, and proofreaders, and continues to support the scholarship and writing of serious researchers in all fields of study."
-- Essential rating, Choice

“The revolution continues. With the manual’s 17th edition . . . both the online and hard copy editions address all kinds of issues not pertinent a decade or even seven years ago. . . . However the University of Chicago Press has not forgotten its roots. The 1013-page book (not including a 129-page index) still has all the traditional information that writers, editors and publishers expect from what is often called the ‘Bible’ of the publishing world.”
, Publishing Research Quarterly

“A magnificent piece of work."
, Indexer

“For those looking to learn or reference the Chicago formatting and citation styles, The Chicago Manual of Style will always be the go-to resource. Despite each new edition’s growth in length and changes in content, the volume remains the same: the definitive—and only—guide to Chicago style. Given the print volume’s size and weight, the online version, with its additional features—many of which are freely available—is a good alternative for both brief and dedicated users who want portable access to the manual or want to move beyond the content to engage with The Chicago Manual of Style community.”
, Journal of Electronic Publishing

“With publication of its seventeenth edition, the venerable Chicago Manual of Style adapts to changes in technology and editorial preferences while retaining its long-established principles.”
, Technical Communication
