“I think it's easy to navigate and includes pertinent information to the student while still being small and easy to carry around. It's something that I believe to be a handy reference to them, particularly when working on essays that involve research and citations. It also has great examples for the grammar principles it covers.”

--Danielle Santos, North Shore Community College

A Pocket Style Manual is both comprehensive and concise, which is difficult to achieve. I don't think I've ever found a necessary grammar or style concept that it lacked. And the examples are incredibly helpful for students. It seems "just right" in terms of size, length, price, and content. I also think the multiple style guidelines (MLA, APA, Chicago, CSE) make it a lasting resource throughout college.”

--Elizabeth Brewer, Central Connecticut State University

A Pocket Style Manual is more than just another textbook--it's a tool for the students. When taught how to use the book like a tool, the students are empowered to be active writers. The book gives them quick and easy accessibility to grammar, mechanics, and a variety of documentation guidelines.”
