    Comments about Style Manual:

    I'm an Australian editor and I bought this for my own work and my workplace, it's informative and I've gone through the book and added tabs to all the relevant pages to my work (such as grammar and punctuation or editor's marks) and found this has lots of relevant information and some not-so (but I am not adverse to learning more each day). Highly recommended for Australian authors, editors or typesetters especially when we have different vocabulary and spelling rules compared to outside Aus.
