TESTIMONIALS

Language and its usage

are evolving at a dizzying pace encouraged by social media. Words take on new meanings sometimes overnight; specialized terms come from out of nowhere. Through this constantly shifting landscape, the Associated Press Stylebook has remained my steady guide to communicating clearly and accurately. And isn't that one of the most basic tenets of journalism?"

How do I love the AP Stylebook?

I won't count the ways -- but there are plenty of reasons we at PR Daily keep it by our sides and why our readers eat up AP style tips and recent changes. The AP Stylebook might not end the Oxford comma debate in your office, but it can answer your writing questions with the flip of a page (or tap of a button) -- and might even make you a better writer. For PR pros who are desperate for journalistic attention, clean copy and a compelling story are two keys to reporters' hearts. This book can help you achivee the first, the rest is up to you."
