Pequena biografia
"She was born Laura Kate Larimore on Chicago’s south side, where she was also raised, graduating from Hyde Park High School. A serious illness prevented Kate from attending college. Instead she took a job as a typist at an advertising agency, where she worked alongside a young Sherwood Anderson. She met her husband, Stephen Turabian, in 1919, and began working at the University as a departmental secretary a few years later. In 1930 she became the University’s dissertation secretary, a newly created position in which every accepted doctoral thesis had to cross her desk. It was there that she wrote a small pamphlet describing the correct style for writing college dissertations."

"A devout Episcopalian, an accomplished cook, an enthusiastic and adventurous traveler, and a voracious reader whose erudition earned the respect of scholars of all ranks despite her lack of the customary academic credentials."

A useful guide to double check how to properly cite your works in Chicago Style. However, most of the book is information that is not needed; I only used the quick citation guide.

Great reference book. Turabian provides examples of nearly every item you need for research and writing. I wish I could say that I did not have to read this book but it is an excellent reference tool.

I'm not really done, done, as this is one of those reference books I'll continue to go back to. But it is written in an inviting manner.

Indispensable for the writer in the Humanities, especially history. Not as comprehensive as Chicago, but short and easy to use. The newest edition has two color fonts that helps subject headings and citation examples stand out, but the new numbering system is a bit unhandy. (I mean, at one point: "17.8.3.5"! That's unhandy!) The internet citations are spruced up a bit. (I still hate the inclusion of the "author-date" system, but it appears only history and art history still use bibliographies and footnotes.) For the first time the index references the subject headings and not page numbers. Why still a four-star review? I looked up how to cite a map: 16.2.3, 16.4.3.1, 17.8.1 - in none of those are maps specifically mentioned or treated. And still, maps are treated as ephemeral reference works, and not true sources. (This angers a map historian like me, and most cartographic history journals have their own citation style for maps.)

Still, even with citation programs like Zotero out there, you must have Turabian on the shelf (not just for citations, but pesky grammar and style issues.)
