Synopses & Reviews
Adopted at more than 1600 schools across the country in more than 20 different academic disciplines, A Pocket Style Manual is a straightforward, inexpensive quick reference to the essentials of writing and research. This best-selling pocket resource is now accompanied by a robust companion Web site developed by Diana Hacker.
"Pocket provides the right amount of information for my students. I appreciate that the author has managed to summarize well three main documentation systems in one small publication. I teach a wide variety of courses and the flexibility of A Pocket Style Manual allows me to rely on just one style guide." Andrew M. Drozd, Modern Languages and Classics, University of Alabama
