The Associated Press Stylebook and Libel Manual. Fully Revised and Updated.
Goldstein, Norm, Ed.
Noting that more people write for The Associated Press (AP) than for any single newspaper in the world and that its style defines clear writing, this book presents more than 5000 entries that present AP's rules on grammar, spelling, punctuation and usage, with extra sections about reporting business and sports. The book, considered essential for writers, editors, and students, also presents a libel manual, copyright guidelines, information on the Freedom of Information Act, style guidelines for photo captions and filing practices, and guidelines to help editors handle copy easily and efficiently.
