Written for journalists by journalists, Working with Words provides the examples, exercises, and rhetorical advice the Associated Press Stylebook does not. The ideal reference for journalism students, the sixth edition focuses on improving grammar and style by offering more grammar help, more on ethics, and more on writing for online media.
