I only gave this 5 Stars because I know it's done professionally and is the book one must have at my University but I never read it and I'll tell you why. Because I bought it in Kindle PC/Android form... don't do it you'll get very angry. You know how your typical Kindle books can widen on the screen for you but it keeps the full page in view? This won't. To read it you have to enlarge it and it goes right off your screen soooooooo much you have to scroll up and down left and right! This was poorly done. So like others, I'll reorder it in Spiral Bound.
I found this completely useless for writing papers and had to buy the APA Publication Manual. This is coming from a new graduate student who was trying to learn to write APA style. If that is your purpose for buying this manual, stick with the blue APA Publication Manual. I could find no use for this condensed version and it never had information that was relevant to writing my papers correctly.
I did think the size and spiral binding was kind of handy, if only the information inside was useful.
According to the APA website, the 1st printing of the Concise Rules has 'minor' typos. I have just gone through a tedious process, over about 3 hours, noting corrections for 'minor' typos in the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition, first printing. I ordered the Concise Rules but will return in to the sender, if it is a 1st printing. The APA web site states that the main errors are in the sample papers, in the Manual, and that the other errors are minor. There are multiple minor errors that are very tedious to deal with.
