A useful guide to double check how to properly cite your works in Chicago Style. However, most of the book is information that is not needed; I only used the quick citation guide. ( )

Great reference book. Turabian provides examples of nearly every item you need for research and writing. I wish I could say that I did not have to read this book but it is an excellent reference tool. ( )

I'm not really done, done, as this is one of those reference books I'll continue to go back to. But it is written in an inviting manner.

Turabian remains an indispensable guide for student researchers, particularly in the humanities and social sciences. . . . Writers and researchers, beginning or seasoned, thus owe a great debt to the publishers who are committed to keeping style guides current amid continuous evolution of the act—and art—of research.
 
This book is a great source of learning for the writers. You'll find help for your term papers, thesis, and dissertation writing in this book. I rate this book high because it's easy to understand. Daniel Mark Miller - Dissertation Help Love.

Book description
My God, forget the Chicago Manual and get this book. Turabian gets right to the point, whereas the manual is way too long and complicated.
