For over a century, The Chicago Manual of Style (15th ed., 2003; 14th ed., CH, Jan'94, 31-2458) has guided writers, proofreaders, and editors through issues of style and the publication process. The 16th edition's editors have improved navigation in both print and online formats through reorganizing the text into three main sections ("The Publishing Process," "Style and Usage," and "Documentation"), expanding paragraph headings, and including more cross-references (hyperlinked in the online version). The volume addresses issues of e-publishing in more detail than the other comparable style manuals (MLA Style Manual and Guide to Scholarly Publishing, 3rd ed., CH, Nov'08, 46-1235; Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th ed., 2010). Electronic resource coverage is greatly expanded overall, with detailed information on electronic production processes, added glossary terms, and additional documentation information (e.g., DOIs and URLs; blogs and podcasts). Some sections have been elegantly rewritten for content and clarity, such as the call for "a style ... that no reasonable person could call sexist, and ... that never suggests you're contorting your language to be nonsexist" (p. 301-302), along with a practical list of nine strategies to achieve this goal. Throughout this edition, the editors' judicious use of this type of list in place of paragraphs increases ease of use.The online version of the manual provides a clean, intuitive interface for users accustomed to print reference sources, with a hyperlinked table of contents on the main page. Ample cross-references throughout the text and the extremely thorough index are hyperlinked as well. For those who prefer keyword searching, the Google-powered search interface returns a page with individual results tabs for the 15th edition, 16th edition, the Chicago Style Q&A, and user-defined Notes and Style Sheets (available only to individual subscribers, not institutional users). The Q&A section is an ongoing feature providing clear answers to questions about manual rules in a refreshingly humorous tone. Those who know the paragraph number of specific text can jump directly there from the front page. Content is exactly the same in the online and print editions; these editions will continue to be released simultaneously, so no revisions will take place in the online version between editions. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers. M. F. Jones East Tennessee State University

The new go-to publishing manual is here! Responding to the demands made of publishing professionals in the digital age, the 16th edition continues to provide information for word lovers but has enhanced its guidelines to include electronic workflow and processes. For example, a new section delves into electronic markup and XML. While its front pages cover topics similar to those of the previous edition, the Documentation section has been expanded to provide guidelines for notes and bibliographies, as well as for author-date references. There is updated information on DOIs versus URLs, as well as an introduction to Unicode, the international computing standard. Appendix A covers production and digital technology, while Appendix B expands the glossary to include electronic publishing terms, such as bitmap, character encoding, and document type definition. In another bow to our changing production styles, there is an expanded section on bias-free writing. For the first time, the manual is available both in print and online simultaneously. This venerable bible also has a new pastel blue bookjacket to alert users to the style, usage, and technology updates within, though the familiar orange cloth lies below. BOTTOM LINE A worthy, welcome addition to every library collection as well as professional wordsmiths and educated readers of all persuasions.-Marilyn Searson Lary, formerly with North Georgia Coll. & State Univ., Dahlonega (c) Copyright 2010.

"The 16th edition has been restructured for digital publishing, making it more relevant, and has stopped waffling on many rules, making it easier to use. If you already use CMS, I'd strongly urge you to update to the 16th edition. It's not a small update, and it just may resolve many of the issues you've been dealing with."The Writing Resource

"For over one hundred years, The Chicago Manual of Style has been setting and defending stylistic standards. In a world where we often communicate with just our thumbs and publish our thoughts from 30,000 feet in the air, we need something to ground us, to solve the little problems, to give us answers we never knew we needed, and to make us beam (or scream) with solutions to the dilemma of the omitted antecedent of a relative pronoun."

"Chicago's granite-solid strength abides in the familiar guidance generations of editors and scholars have depended uponhow to treat punctuation, names, numbers, tables, quotations, dialogue, abbreviations, etc. Users will welcome the streamlined approach to documentation, introducing greater consistency between the author-date and the notes-bibliography citation systems. This is the first edition of The Chicago Manual of Style to be published simultaneously in print and online. Either way, no library serving serious authors can be without it." Booklist

"Bound, famously, in orange and thicker with each new edition, the 104-year-old reference classic has kept watch over the publication of hundreds of great books and thousands of not-so-great ones, an arbiter and aide-de-camp for editors trying to decide how to handle items in a list, punctuation within quotes or, these days, the proper hexadecimal code for the German double low-9 quotation mark (201E, as you probably suspected)."Steve Johnson,Chicago Tribune

"As an equal-opportunity usage geek, I'm excited. . . . The new edition's press materials come with a 19-point bulleted list of what's fresh, including an electronic-editing checklist, all sorts of guidelines for e-publishing (XML workflow, anyone?), and here's where they had me a whole new section on parallel structure! (Swoon.) The book contains an ''expanded section on bias-free language,'' which in this cultural moment I might have titled the ''wishful thinking'' section. And it promises ''firmer rules and clearer recommendations,'' which was striking, considering the seemingly inexorable trend away from firmness in matters of grammar and usage, especially online."
