Industry Standard

A second copy for the office

by RareBookCollector on Feb 23, 2012

I purchased this Chicago Manual of Style 15th Edition as a second copy for the office, just in case someone permanently "borrows" it (so I'm not out of much money). It's that popular!

I can't tell you how useful thIs has been for me in writing my graduate thesis, and it will probably come in just as handy down the road. You won't need another style guide for probably 15 or 20 years (between editions).
