Great book for college students or really anyone who is writing a large paper. It breaks down the process into manageable bits. She also authored The Student’s Guide for Writing College Papers. Chicago has always insisted on the highest standards for the substantive content of dissertations at the university; Kate Turabian enforced the highest standards for the form of those dissertations as well. A Manual for Writers carried her reputation for exactitude well beyond the halls of Chicago. Kate L. Turabian was our trusted guide and mentor, the absolute authority, the one who knew all there was to know about the strange world of proper term papers.

Besides the book's step-by-step directions for all aspects of paper writing, the sixth chapter, "Some Matters of Style, " has been extensively revised, and the List of Reference Works useful to students has been recompiled and greatly expanded by Donald F. Bond, a specialist in bibliography.

I was disappointed with this book for several reasons:
1) It was written pre-video, pre-internet; therefore, many aspects of incorporating sources into class papers lack any directives by Turabian.

2) While sharing the "what not to do's", this book lacked many "to do's". For example, in the footnoting section, she indicated when not to use Ibid., but the book lacks specific direction on what to do.

3) Information is not easily accessible for specific points...lots of searching to find where the information is located in the book.

While eventually you get to the information you need, I found myself using my "best guess" in writing my papers and hoping for the best. I had hoped that this book would build my confidence BEFORE I submit my student work. Unfortunately, my university using the Turabian method!

In it's time this was probably THE reference for writing term papers, but with the passing of time, it has become dated. With information on such things as footnotes, it is simply not up-to-date with the styles currently in use at most colleges. Probably manuals such as the Beacon Handbook or the MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers would be better reference choices.
Yes, this book is outdated for citing internet resources, etc. However if you need to understand how to put together and outline, this book has an excellent section with an example of an actual outline. This is something that I have found to be missing from current handbooks and it has proved very valuable to me.
