The nuts and bolts of documentation for the three most popular systems--MLA, APA, and CMS (Chicago Manual of Style)--laid out in an exceptionally clear and easy-to-follow format. Why consult multiple (and often lengthy) style guides when you can see the three most widely-used methods, side by side, in this slim, focused volume by Larson? The book rightly divides the documentation process into two parts: In-Text Citation and Bibliographic Citation. Each part starts with a brief section on General Principles and then proceeds to give numerous common examples, where the exact same citation is seen three different ways, once each for MLA, APA, and CMS. And at the end of the book's second part are complete sample bibliographic pages for each of the three systems: a "Works Cited" page for MLA, a "References" page for APA, and a "Notes" page for CMS. This text is time and classroom-tested through Larson's long experience as an instructor of English at the college level. He knows what writers need to know about documentation, and he knows how to communicate that in the clearest, most efficient way. If you are looking for a simple, one-volume source on documentation to take you through your college years and beyond, this book might be the only one you'll ever need.

This compact but complete guide shows that less is more—with fewer extraneous details getting in the way of students trying to learn on the run, it allows them to focus on the most important principles of effective technical communication. The Concise Guide takes a rhetorical approach to technical communication; instead of setting up a list of rules that should be applied uniformly to all writing situations, it introduces students to the bigger picture of how the words they write can affect the people intended to read them. Assignments and exercises are integrated throughout to reinforce and test knowledge.
