From Booklist A mainstay in high-school and college libraries for nearly 60 years, Turabian has now been updated to incorporate references to the fourteenth edition of The Chicago Manual of Style [RBB O 1 93]. Founding author Turabian died in 1987; this edition was revised by John Grossman and Alice Bennett, who edited the most recent edition of The Manual of Style. The arrangement of the book remains the same. Chapters 13 and 14 show the ubiquity of computers. It is assumed that students now write their papers on a PC; typewriter users are referred back to the previous edition. The documentation chapters tell how to cite CD-ROM and online sources, and the bibliography at the end of the book has been updated. However, much of the book is unchanged. Librarians will want to see what kind of condition.
A nice and easy reference that is well organized. Highly recommended. I've never found a better reference.

This volume is very helpful and even necessary for the writing of certain scholarly papers. I find it easy to read, the layout is good.
