AP Stylebook adds e-book edition to digital product suite
The Associated Press Stylebook and Briefing on Media Law is available for the first time as an interactive e-book, making the nation’s leading resource for newsroom style easier to use.
AP is releasing the 2015 AP Stylebook e-book with Basic Books, a division of The Perseus Books Group, which also publishes the perfect-bound print AP Stylebook sold in retail outlets.
Stylebook fans have asked for an e-book version for years, tweeting AP Stylebook On Twitter to suggest adding an e-book to Stylebook’s digital product suite. While AP has offered a digital edition in PDF form on Google Play, Chegg eTextbooks and Follett’s BryteWave, this is the first time the AP Stylebook is available as an interactive e-book on platforms including Amazon Kindle, Apple iBooks, Barnes & Noble Nook and Kobo.
At more than 5,000 entries, the 2015 AP Stylebook is the biggest edition in its more than six decades of publication. The e-book makes it faster and easier to find a relevant style rule. Now journalists, students, public relations professionals and other writers and editors will have style guidance at the ready at all times.
The 2015 AP Stylebook includes about 300 new or revised entries. The Sports chapter is updated with terms on baseball, basketball, football, horse racing, soccer and winter sports. An 85-page dynamic index helps users quickly find words and definitions, supplementing the e-book’s search with concepts and themes users might look for.
The AP Stylebook, edited by David Minthorn, Sally Jacobsen and Paula Froke, is widely used as a writing and editing reference in newsrooms, classrooms and corporate offices worldwide.
Updated regularly since its initial publication in 1953, the AP Stylebook is a must-have reference for writers, editors, students and professionals. It provides fundamental guidelines for spelling, language, punctuation, usage and journalistic style. It is the definitive resource for journalists.
The AP Stylebook is available in print and multiple digital formats.
