Not sure that I would say this is the must have book for every writer. I would, however, say that if you are a college student or if you write academic papers that the LB Brief can be a lifesaver.

Of course make sure you have the most recent edition as MLA, APA and the Chicago Style do change from time to time. I also highly suggest to make sure to get the spiral bound so it will lie flat on the desk/table you are working on.

Other book that went along with Good Reasons with Contemporary Arguments. Insightful and extensive as well, hard to navigate and sometimes confusing.
