This book was recommended to me by a professor in the department during a series of workshops on writing skills for post graduates. It is an excellent resource with bite size chapters on how to approach different sections of scientific writing - an area I have always struggled with. As the quote in Chapter 3 begins "Writing is easy. All you do is stare at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead" (Gene Fowler). If this is how you feel, then this book is the help you have been looking for. Easy to read and understand with a practical framework and guidance on beginning a writing project such as a report or thesis. Worth every penny.

It's a good reference for beginners who want to start authoring scientific papers or presentations. However, it is in the beginners level and few topics cover subjects for experienced writers...In addition one has to wonder if you need to buy a beginners guide for such a huge price?

I first encountered this book over 20 years ago, when a German student who was writing a scientific paper in English lent it to me. Even as a non-scientist, I found it very interesting and informative. It has a very good index and a useful glossary and appendices. Also deals with related matters such as the Internet and computers (this 5th edition of 1998 still mentions dot matrix printers, so don't expect to find out about the latest laptops!) Definitely recommmended for the scientific reader and others, like translators, who have dealings with scientific papers
