At 638 pages, the AP Stylebook is widely used as a writing and editing reference in newsrooms, classrooms and corporate offices worldwide. Read the press release.
The classic spiral-bound Stylebook lies flat on your desk, making it easy for you to refer to an entry multiple times as you write or edit. The Associated Press releases a new edition each spring, compiling additions and changes that have been made throughout the year on AP Stylebook Online. The 2018 Stylebook includes about 200 new and updated entries since the 2017 edition.
It SETS the industry standard, and is nimble enough to adapt when those standards need to change.
