Used by nearly a quarter million students each year, A Pocket Style Manual is a straightforward, inexpensive quick reference, with content flexible enough to suit the needs of writers in the humanities, social sciences, sciences, health professions, business, fine arts, education, and beyond. Its slim format, brief length, and spiral binding make it easy for students to keep A Pocket Style Manual with them for every writing assignment, in any class. With its signature Hacker handbook quick-reference features—hand-edited sentences, color-coded documentation coverage, user-friendly index entries, and a clean, uncluttered design—A Pocket Style Manual has always provided fast, effective answers to writing and research questions. In the Hacker tradition, new coauthor Nancy Sommers has crafted solutions for the challenges today’s college students face. The new edition provides even more help with research writing and supports students in every discipline. Read the preface.

'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
