Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...should be required reading for scholar/authors, or would be authors...her book is a lucid and valuable primer that renders a needed service to academic authors and publishers alike." Scholarly Publishing

"Anyone from a graduate student to the still hyperkinetic producer (of textbooks or monographs or in between) can learn from this straightforward, sober, thorough, orderly, and practical guide, reinforced by classified, annotated, and evaluative bibliography." American Literature

"Put this book into the hands of most of the young writers you know. It is neither pedantic nor patronizing. It will help them think better about writing and publishing. It could be read with profit by all academics." Alan H. Brush, CBE Views (Council of Biology Editors)
