Is a comma needed to offset a title?

If I were to try and describe a book called "Book", is this sentence grammatically correct? >The book _Book_ by Joe Bob is set in... I was told that this sentence is incorrect, that commas must surround the "_Book_" to create this: >The book, _Book_, by Joe Bob is set in... I think that the first sentence is much more clear, while the second places more emphasis on "book". Am I correct in this thinking? If you could provide me with some source (website, rule name, etc.) that delves more into this matter, I would appreciate it.
