'The book's completeness combined with its portability means that our students actually bring it to class and put it to use.' - Leslie Johnson-Farris, Communication Department, Lansing Community College, USA 'My students like the affordability, clarity, and coverage of everything they seem to need. Many say they will keep A Pocket Style Manual long after they graduate.' - Richard Battaglia, California State University, USA 'I like the slim, spiral-bound, durable, well-indexed, concise format. The content is ideal for me. The examples are especially useful and compelling. It is a great value for students during their entire college career and beyond.' - David Bussard, Susquehanna University, USA 'I like A Pocket Style Manual because it is not intimidating to students and, despite its small size, it has everything I need for classroom activities and for helping students with specific problems in their papers and with their research.' - Elizabeth Hoffman, California State University, USA
