From the Jacket

If you want a down-to-earth guide on writing cleanly, accurately and concisely, as well as a one-stop reference book with reliable information on everything from the currency of Argentina to what a person from Labrador is called, turn to the CP Stylebook.

The Canadian Press Stylebook is the bible consulted by journalists at Canada's national news agency as they deliver hundreds of stories each day to newspapers, broadcasters and Internet sites.

It is also an indispensable guide for public relations writers, corporate communicators, and web and magazine editors - in fact, just about anyone looking for practical answers to questions on writing and editing.
