The Redbook is the most authoritative, comprehensive, and easily usable manual of legal style. Written by Bryan A. Garner, with contributions from all six lawyers at LawProse Inc., The Redbook covers everything that mere citation manuals don't and can't: punctuation, capitalization, grammar, prose style, and clarity in general. The Redbook is an eminently usable reference book. Written in the style of a restatement, the black-letter rules are followed by exhaustive comments and illustrations.
