What is the difference between the spiral-bound Stylebook and the perfect-bound paperback Stylebook?

AP publishes a new spiral-bound Stylebook each spring. We sell our book directly on apstylebook.com and to college bookstores.


Basic Books, part of Hachette Book Group, publishes a perfect-bound paperback AP Stylebook. It is nearly identical to the AP version, without our spiral binding. This version is sold via retail bookstores, both online and bricks and mortar.
