Pocket style in possibly name alone, this 304 page manual is an invaluable resource though I suppose it might fit in a large pocket. ( )

Another very handy pocket guide to own for quick grammar and research reference. ( )

This is a really, really good little manual, especially concerning its size. I've read a lot of short ones that are filled with too much prose to make them useful, or that don't have the examples or specifics I need. There's only been one thing so far, a specific example of a rule, that I looked up and couldn't find, and I wasn't able to find it anywhere online, either. Only the good ol' Chicago Manual of Style helped me out and since I have a hard copy of that, too, I'm good to go. (I like having hardcopies because sometimes my Internet is just too slow.) Highly recommended. ( )

An excellent quick reference, handily wirebound, for style and citations according to MLA, APA, and Chicago. ( )
