Most scientists live in a "publish or perish" environment, but few would describe themselves as brilliant writers. Coming to the aid of all those wishing to improve the quality of their scientific writing, three experienced authors from differing backgrounds and cultures have worked together to compile this classic guide to scientific writing.

This new edition has been completely revised to reflect dramatic changes in communication over the past 15 years. The primary emphasis is on writing techniques, accurate expression, adherence to accepted standards, and above all clarity, but the authors also venture into communication technology and organizational as well as ethical aspects of science.

"The authors have a passion, not only for clarity and economy of style, but also for precision and consistency."

(Nature)

"A wealth of information contained in a single book of manageable proportions. Students reporting on a simple laboratory experiment and their teachers preparing a paper or lecture will both find this book a constant companion."

(European Science Editing)

"The book under review claims, ′we know of no book as broad in its coverage, as critical in its analysis of existing trends, and as international in its scope′. This claim is immodest but accurate."
