      As a genealogist researcher, I needed to learn how to source my research citations Very important if you are writing a genealogy piece This book taught me how in a clear and uncomplicated style It is updated and has been a classic source for many a research writer Full of good sensible advice for the writer.

    2. David Withun

      I have used this book as a reference since I was an undergraduate student years ago It has accompanied me through a senior undergraduate thesis, a masters thesis, and innumerable class papers both great and small I am a bit ashamed to admit, however, that this is the first time I have read the book through from cover to cover I wish I had done so much sooner Reading this book through has been a great opportunity to examine the logic behind the genius of the Chicago Turabian system up close as we [...]

    3. Aleisa

      Why does this Turabian lady get to say how I document and cite my history papers and why, why, why can t English, History, and Education people just get together and pick one style they can all agree on frustrated sob

    4. Said Al-Maskery

      A very useful guide to research thinking You don t need to be doing postgraduate studies in order to benefit from this book It is equally useful to anyone seeking to write an informative and research based articles However it is a guide, you cant just go on and read it without implementing the ideas in it I would probably return to it whenever I work on a paper until research methodology is ingrained as a habit.

    5. Comicfairy (Leanne)

      Recommended by all my Professors this semester, Turabian s book is a classic for anyone charged with writing essays in Chicago style formatting Still, locating the text online can be relevant in cases such as Youtube video citation or blogs which are not covered in this edition While it seems a bit easier to hunt these instructions down online, the hardcopy is a useful tool to have in your collection Still crossing my fingers that the academic world would just PICK ONE format and use it univers [...]

      I loved the reviewer who called this a nail biting thriller Hilarious I also agreed with the reviewer who wondered why history, English, and other fields can t all use the same style I have written papers in 4 different styles As far as manuals go this one is much like all the others I can t be very enthusiastic because I dislike the very precise structure of all the styles even while I understand the need for them.

    7. Jewels

      This book was one of the required reading materials for my last history course, and I read it as I was working on my research paper Frankly, I prefer the MLA format, and Turabian can take this pile of you know what and jump in a very deep lake with it Preferably one with a sink hole To the center of the earth I hope I never have to use this book again.

    8. Marco Bitetto

      This is a must read for anyone that wants to do research reports,thesis and dissertations This book forms the defacto standard that all the other writers manuals for thesis, research papers and dissertations follow.

    9. Brian Nicks

      I used this throughout seminary and found it to be a very useful tool for every paper I wrote Wish people would take writing this seriously.

    10. Melissa

      This book got me through my PhD dissertation If you need a How To Write this is it It has solid examples, great trouble shooting methods I still have it and use it regularly.

    11. Nathan Moore

      Yep I actually read it Can t say that I enjoyed it, but the 8th edition is very helpful In seminary I used the 6th edition which lacked the very helpful Part 1 Reacher and Writing from Wayne Booth s Craft of Research It is really excellent and covers matters of planning, style, grammar, revisions and even strategies for productivity This is a massive improvement over previous editions.I still hate Turabian not Kate, I m sure she was lovely.

    12. Christa La Lista

      This book is absolutely essential to citing sources correctly for Chicago Turabian style in detail It is much valuable than any online version The first ten chapters are very helpful in effectively making and defending a claim It is well worth the read, and I wish I had read it my first year of undergrad.

    13. Doutor Branco

      A little than seventy five years ago, Kate L Turabian drafted a lot of guidelines to help students understand how to write, cite, and formally submit research writing The Manual retains three part structure, leading off with an overview of the steps in the research and writing process, including formulating questions, reading critically, building arguments, and revising drafts Part II provides an overview of citation practices with detailed data on the two main scholarly citation styles notes b [...]

    14. Michael

      I don t have very much to say about this book, because I didn t use it for very long before I obtained my copy of The Chicago Manual of Style, which I still use as my primary style guide I have to chastise the younger me for getting the 1987 edition in 2003, when it was already seriously out of date Clearly, the frugality of the grad student was the explanation the receipt slip I find between pages 194 and 195 says I paid all of 8 for it Turabian is sort of the poor man s Chicago Manual, and it [...]

    15. Carl C

      Old school style for writing and formatting Some would say antiquated Not many folks I know , in academia or in publishing, use this format but I work usually in social sciences sciences tech fields So, it may be different for other folks in different industries or research areas.This book gets the job done in clarifying what is needed in formatting a paper in this latest edition of A Manual For Writers , but I think the approach to the organization could be grouped in easier ways Too detailed a [...]

      It was my friend, Melvin M who suggested me to buy this manual two years ago My friend believed that this book is best for people who are into technical writing This is one of the books that I really treasured It serves as my bible in technical writing This book is my ultimate guide in teaching Thesis Writing In fact, I even required all my students to secure one copy of this manual I believe that this manual is a good investment for students who are currently on their term papers, theses, and d [...]

    18. Jessica

      Well, it s not like this is a riveting book But it is supremely useful In the past I have only used it as a reference, but I must say, I wish I would have read it in its entirely from the get go It contains really great advice not just on formatting but also on clear writing, punctuation, and all sorts of things If you have a question about writing, you will probably find an answer in this book And, being in the humanities, I certainly prefer this citation style to MLA or APA I hate in text cita [...]

    19. Brent McCulley

      Used this edition of Kate L Turabian s Manual for Writers for the last few years of my undergraduate degree Although it s essentially Chicago Manuel of Style, it s simplified, and much easier to navigate for the historian writing papers with endnotes Even still, this sixth edition is not as helpful and up to date as the newest edition, which I m currently using in graduate school.Brent McCulley 10 24 13

    20. Chad

      My constant companion Invaluable resource for any writer required to conform to Turabian style or for those who desire an effective citation style that avoids the clutter of MLA s in text citations Well organized, fairly thorough Could use extensive examples and specific guidelines Although it generally addresses the citation questions I bring to the manual, it periodically omits information that would be helpful sometimes CMS includes what I am looking for, though not always.

    21. Julia

      This text is a quintessential compilation of how to write, document, and organize front and back matter Explanations with included examples are given for all different types of sources whether implement footnotes or endnotes A sample paper is included to demonstrate how to arrange term papers through doctoral dissertations Writing styles and crafting thesis statements are included as well This text should be required for every Pre AP, AP, and college student.
