The style of the Associated Press defines clear news writing. In fact, more people write for the AP news service than for any single newspaper or broadcaster worldwide. The AP Stylebook is an essential handbook for all writers, editors, students, and public relations specialists.
An up-to-date AP Stylebook belongs on the desk of every working writer. This edition contains more than 5,000 entries laying out the AP's rules on grammar, spelling, punctuation, and usage. It gives journalists the references they need to write about the world today: correct names of countries and organizations, Internet language and search techniques, language to avoid, and common trademarks. This edition also includes crucial advice on how writers can guard against libel and copyright infringement.
