Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Scientific English also does a very good job of showing how one can improve individual sentences. Its chief virtues are its wealth of examples (new in this edition) and the special care it gives to the trickiest parts of scientific writing. . . . Scientific English overall is an excellent guide for those people writing scientific English, from peer-reviewed journals to blogs, online comments sections, grants, and social media." - Technical Communication

"This book is an excellent one for reference. It should be a welcome addition to the medical writer's library." - American Medical Writers Association (AMWA) Journal
