Format: Paperback
If you're thinking about picking up this book to fill out your home library and tighten up your personal writing a little bit, then this is a reasonable choice. It gets most of the important things mostly right. If, however, you are serious writer or editor and you are looking for that single authoritative book on style, this is not the book for you.
If you're the kind of person who has strong feelings about the Oxford comma (either way) then you will likely find some parts of this book slightly annoying. There are some inconsistencies and illogical choices that just don't make sense. Beyond some minor difficulties, I've also taken issue with some of the odd typographical choices that were made. None of these annoyances are especially heinous on their own. Who can really get all that worked up over punctuation?
If you already have a strong base in style, or if you have another high-quality authoritative style-related book, then this book is a decent guide to the quirks of Canadian writing. As long as you feel confident enough to take the good and ignore the bad, this book can be very useful to a Canadian writer.

Format: Paperback
"The Canadian Style" is an essential tool for editors and translators and others involved with writing in their daily lives. There are a number of writers I have come across who could benefit from having it handy as well. The 1996 revised and expanded edition is the fruit of a great deal of experience, as well as practice in the making of this unique kind of reference tool. At first sight, it's not that easy to find your way around such a book. However, once you've used it for a month or two, you'll find that you can go to the right section fairly quickly: it is well set out. Among the myriad problems that it covers, there's a useful section on Canadian geographical names and a quick look at French typographical rules. Whilst you may or may not find this last section of use, it indicates the degree of thoroughness that the book is attempting. All wordsmiths on the upper (slightly colder) side of the border should own it.
