When citing a book in Chicago style, you usually have to include the author’s name, the title of the book, publisher city, publisher name, and the year of publication. If there’s more than one author, the first author’s name is reversed, with a comma placed after the last name.
If required by your instructor, you can add annotations to your citations. Just select Add Annotation while finalizing your citation. You can always edit a citation as well.
