Setting off the title of work with commas

Mark Twain's book ROUGHING IT describes his travels as a young man.

The name of the title in a text is italicized (I just can't do the same on my IPad). The question was if the name of a Mark Twain's book should be set off with commas. I answered NO, but the practice book's authors give answer YES. Who is right?

@Sweet-sweet,
There is no need for commas.

@tanguatlay,
Tanguatlay is right.

I'm old school, though. I'd include them.

It's a matter of preference.
