A very helpful resource: The Associated Press Stylebook 2020-2022 by The Associated Press

This book provides writers with many guidelines.  In chapters on everything from style (including capitalization, abbreviations, spelling and more), to those on Business, Health and Science, Digital Security,  and Religion among others, guidance and information are given that will help writers with their projects.

In addition to suggestions on grammar, punctuation, usage and more, this title also reflects changes in the language and provides information on the values of the AP.

This book is published biennially which keeps it current. For example, this edition talks about the use of gender neutral language.  There are also entries on the corona virus. If you are a word person, just browsing through the pages of this title is so interesting and instructive.   It is encyclopedic in its entries.

The book utilizes the knowledge of the staff of the AP.  It is a welcome tool that belongs in both academic and home libraries.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
