    Parentheses (also called brackets in British English) are a punctuation mark used to contain text that is not part of the main sentence, but that is too important to either leave out entirely or to put in a footnote or an there are many reasons to use parentheses, be sure that the function of parentheses is always made clear to your readers.

Use parentheses in titles to add a clause or side-note.

    Parentheses are a way to stuff more ideas into a sentence than it could otherwise bear. They make life easier for the writer who is trying to capture all his ideas as they bubble up, but harder for the reader trying to make sense of it all. If you nest your parentheses, you risk losing your reader entirely.   To illustrate, in the book (Un)arranged, the prefix “un” is capitalized because it appears as the first “word” of the book title. However, when the parentheses appear in the middle of the title, such as in the book How Carrots Won the Trojan War: Curious (but True) Stories of Common Vegetables, all capitalization rules apply.

    Under the author-date referencing system, a book is cited in the text in parentheses, after the section, sentence, or paragraph for which the book was used as a source, using the surname of the author and the year of publication only, with the parentheses closing before the period, as in (Author ). A complete citation is then placed at the. A comma follows the parentheses because if the parenthetical comment is removed, the rest of the sentence would require a comma: Banging the wall and screaming, Sam was acting like a brat. Punctuation within parentheses. If your parentheses enclose a sentence‐within‐a‐sentence, don't use a period within the parentheses.

It depends on where you are using the book title. If you are using it in a sentence then you would either underline it or italicize it, which I believe looks more professional.

If you are using it for a title then you would italicize it. Parenthesis are only used for in text citations and even there sometimes you don't use parenthesis. Parentheses indicate that the writer feels that the material contained within is of less importance or should be deemphasized.

Parentheses — () — allow you to indicate that a piece of an expression is high-priority — that is, it has to be evaluated before the rest of the expression. When an expression includes parentheses with only Big Four operators, just do the following.

Parentheses and brackets are used to enclose and set off material from the main text. Although writers usually need only one set of parentheses or brackets at a time, for more complex material they may need an enclosure within an enclosure (referred to as a double enclosure in this post).

On the flip side, the AP Stylebook suggests that you use quotation marks around the names of books (with the exceptions of the Bible and catalogs of reference material, such as dictionaries and almanacs, which should not be styled in any way). So if you’re writing for a publication that adheres to AP guidelines, reference books with friendly quotation marks: "Eat, Pray, Love," "Harry Potter.

The old typographical convention which I was told years ago by a retired typesetter, is that if one has nested parenthetical expressions, different characters are used for the inner parenthetical than the outer, so the outer expression is parenthesis, the next level of parenthesis is square brackets, and the next set after that is parentheses again, or sometimes curved brackets, so the pattern.

The singular form is parenthesis, but the plural parentheses is the word you’re more likely to see.
