About The Good Life style
We adhere closely to The Chicago Manual of Style. Over the years, however, we have developed stylistic preferences that may or may not conform to Chicago. A copy of our style sheet will be provided when making assignments.

Obviously, every piece of material we publish must be factually accurate. Beyond that, the quality I most want our readers to experience in reading our features is to feel something, to be moved emotionally as well as to be informed. Writers should work to include significant human interest, and to inject humor, wit, and anything else that will heighten the readers' interest.

We want all the features we publish, including personality profiles, to be realistic and not merely puff pieces. To that end we strive to include realistic assessments of the people and organizations we write about and that means including the comments of informed critics.
