Some quick hints about APA citations:
Authors names are Last Name, First and Middle Initials. Do not use the whole first or middle name.
Only the first letter or proper names in the title of the item is capitalized. You also capitalize the first letter that occurs after punctuation such as a colon, question mark or exclamation point in the title.
If the book has an editor rather than an author, put (Ed.) after the author's name.
If the citation is more than one line, indent the rest of the lines.
