SIDELIGHTS:

Gwendolyn D. Gabriel told CA: "I am a self-proclaimed cheapskate who is also an attorney and a real estate broker. Of these titles, I believe that 'cheapskate' is the one that has had the greatest impact on my life.

"I became totally debt-free in five years by paying off all my debts, including my thirty-year mortgage loan. Being a cheapskate comes naturally to me, but I realize that it may not come as naturally to others, so I wrote my book to help others get out of debt, too. I have such a great need to help people who are struggling financially and living from paycheck to paycheck. For this reason, I am inspired to write financial books."

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
