APA - Books

The basic APA format for a print book is:

         Author, Initial. Initial. (Year). 

              Title.  Publisher.

Watters, E. (2010). Crazy like us:

       The globalization of the

       American psyche. Free Press.

For e-books, follow a similar pattern, but list information about where you accessed the book instead of publication information:

Fromm, G. F. (Ed.). (2011). Lost in transmission:

        Studies of trauma across generations. Retrieved
