The section on citing electronic publications is very poorly organized. I wonder whether the author has spent any significant time on the Internet. The categories of sources and the examples given don't handle some of the most common situations you'll run into. It can be rather frustrating having to cobble together citation formats from the examples provided which are close enough to the source I'm trying to cite.
As a result, if you're looking for a book to simply help you appropriately cite your sources, I'd look for another book. (I don't know which one yet; I'm still looking.) However, if you're looking for a general MLA style guide, this book is a respectable start.
I have used this guide many times in writing papers. It has effectively eliminated the guesswork, the wondering just how to include something in my bibliography, or what the proper way to cite something is. Anyone who writes research papers of any kind needs to have a copy of this book.
