This book does not offer a set of rules or guidelines how to write a good scientific article - simply because there are no such general rules. Instead, it teaches you to analyze scientific writing, and helps you to find problems in your own writing. All common problems are illustrated by examples, and possible corrections are suggested.
Reading this book really improved my writing skills.

This book is an excellent way for you to improve your scientific writing. He works through everything from Introduction, Structure, Language and Illustrations by first stating his points and suggestions and then illustrating them with examples. This is a very good way to present his views and ideas, when you read an example of weak and strong writing you realise immediately which one is the better although it would take quite some effort to describe in writing what makes the difference. He offers many hands on tips and hints to improve as well.

This book is a good reference to look up things later on. I have learned a lot from this book, and I can recomend it.

This wonderful book is full of sane and sage advice for any scientist who also has to write about science. The examples are drawn from engineering but are easy to understand for anyone. It should be compulsory reading for scientists.

this is a cool book. this is "The Elements of Style" by William Strunk Jr for scientific writing. heck, even science fiction writers could benefit from the material!
