When I was in college, The Gregg Reference Manual was referred to by the professors as "The Bible". Just like the title says, it covers all the bases for all your writing needs at least on the business level of Style, Grammar, Usage, and Formatting. The book gets better with each edition adding new things to keep up with the technology of today's world. My favorite section of the book it the words that sound alike but spelled differently. Whenever I am not sure which word to use, like "Affect" and "Effect", I head to the GRM. If I am not sure on term papers or reports, I head to the GRM. It is a great book for secretaries and administrative assistants. They have added new sections to keep up with computer usage as in my days of high school and college, we were using manual and electric typewriters and computers are now the basic source for typing correspondence, reports, and all the computer software used in today's business world. I will always buy the latest edition, even though earlier editions, they only change a few words or things, but this is the best reference book to have in your library like a dictionary and thesaurus is.

The description of this item is the 11th US edition of the Gregg Reference Manual. The ISBN code is for the Eighth Canadian Edition, which is what I received and is what you will probably receive if you order from this seller, because even though I have made a complaint to them about this, they continue to post the same thing at Amazon.

This was ordered to update my older version (1974). Still the most complete reference manual I have ever found if you work in an office and need to get to the nitty gritty when working with composing documents and doing transcription for other people.

I needed this book for a class in business communication, and I have to say it is an amazing book!! If you enjoy writing, reading and literature this book (manual) is a must. Basically it has the correct way to write anything. For example, is it am, AM, a.m or A.M. (as in 10 am)? Do you capitalize the word "senator"? This book literally has thousands (or is it 1,000's) of rules and examples! Well worth the cost.

I would not recommend this seller to anyone. I have been using Amazon.com for used textbooks and have never had a problem. Not only did I have to wait a month to receive the book, which made my grade suffer, but they sent me a Canadian Edition of the wrong book! When I contacted them, they told me that they didn't even carry the book I ordered in their inventory! I purchased the book from the book store for only $15.00 more. I should have done that in the first place. After I received the book, I looked at the negative comments for this seller and they were all similar to mine. Many of my classmates made this store to me as a recommendation. They will not be using this seller after my experience! Amazon should be embarrassed to endorse a seller like this on their site!

As a college writing instructor, I refer to this book when all else fails. It contains everything but the proverbial "kitchen sink."

This is not the 11th Edition as advertised. It is a Canadian version of the same book. Not happy!!

As a senior executive assistant, this book is a must. I have an older version (purchased 10 years ago) but knew it needed to be updated. The new version has many new parts, especially relating to computers. I highly recommend this for anyone who is an administrative assistant or similar. I have always found what I needed to know.
