Summary

The style of the Associated Press is the gold standard of news writing. With The AP Stylebook in hand, you can learn to write with the clarity and professionalism for which the Associated Press is famous.

What are the general definitions of the major religious movements? Which companies do the big media conglomerates own? Who are all the members of the British Commonwealth? How should box scores for baseball games be filed? What constitutes "fair use"? What exactly does the Freedom of Information Act cover? Book jacket.
