Thursday Reviews - Get the Write Style!
The Chicago Manual of Style is the style guide you need if you're writing books. The AP Stylebook is the one you need if you're writing for any kind of periodical, including the Internet. These two books are not the last word on style, a lot of publishers (books and periodicals) will develop their own internal style guides, but they are usually based on one of these two books.
The Chicago Manual of Style and The AP Stylebook are offered as online subscriptions. I highly recommend this option because they are updated so frequently.
There are other style guides out there, but these two are considered the best. Because I write books and articles, I own both (and have a subscription to both).
Don't forget to join the conversation!
