Sure, you may be able to find a list of AP style guidelines on the Internet, but this book is comprehensive and is arranged in a format that makes finding specific answers easy, i.e., if you look up "Asperger's Disorder," you'll find that Asperger's syndrome (with a small "s") is the correct AP style.
There are also entire guideline sections on sports, food, fashion, business and social media among others. As an online journalist, punctuation guidelines are crucial, and the AP Stylebook clearly delineates them and demonstrates how to use punctuation properly with multiple examples.
This stylebook is well worth the money, and when a new one is published, I'll purchase it pronto.
The most part of it is the stylebook, which reads like a dictionary, and is quite helpful (if the entries you're looking for are there). There are sections on media law, guidelines for social media, sports, food, fashion, business, broadcast and photo captions.
The editing marks section is only one page, which is pretty disappointing as I thought more should be covered. There should also be more diagrams and graphics in the book especially as examples in "Interactives/Graphics" section. Lots of chunks of text in the whole book can be a turn-off visually. I don't like it that the breakup of words between lines (and thus hyphenated) occurs very very often.
As a test, I looked up "Kampuchea" (not there), USA (no periods), use of en and em dash (not enough info as it just describes "dash" without differentiating both types), and use of numerals (split up here and there but quite good overall).
What I like best though is not the book itself but the buying experience in Amazon. I ordered from an independent seller listed in the "Used" listing, opted for international shipping and got it less than 2 weeks later. Much faster than the estimated 9 weeks! Well the cost of shipping is much more than the cost of the book itself. :)
I was excited to get it. It felt like a right of passage. I was on to my dreams and my future. It is not like a big thrill to leaf through it; it is a much-needed reference book. It is one of those things that you will always have with you. I might make a quick tab system for myself.
I might also get a version for my tablet.
The internet is not a resource that can replace this book!!!!! Your Instructors and Editors will Frown Down Upon You if you get to a certain level of writing, and you did not consult this book when writing!!!!
If anyone has a tabbing system that works for them, I would love to know what you did. When I figure it out, I will share what works for me.
